I didn’t know much else, I admit. Anyone who has gone through, or is going through, life-threatening illness knows that the world shrinks to the breaks between pain meds, the gap between GP appointments and the battles with health services.
And anyone who has, or is still, wrestling with addiction, knows that their world becomes a tiny circle of using, feeling shame, getting the substance and using again.
Nothing else matters. I mean nothing.
