So much love

A serious illness does for your appetite for love what steroids do for your appetite for food. When feeling low and vulnerable, your appetite for love can become insatiable. Fortunately, love came to me from so many different sources, some expected, others surprising. From my family and friends, of course, from my lover - well that goes without saying. The nurses and counsellors and even the cleaners gave so much love. It means so much to me even now. Some of the doctors also expressed love. Is a doctor a better doctor if he (or she) is loving? Undoubtedly. No question of it.
