My family of MEEPS, thoughts on COVID long-haulers & getting serious about chronic illness

A brave & thoughtful story my daughter Nadine wrote about her recent diagnosis with ME, my family's history with the disease, COVID long-haulers and how it's time to start paying attention to those who suffer from chronic illnesses we don't yet understand. This opinion piece ran in a Canadian national newspaper.

"The truth is, the narrative of chronic illness is frustrating. Our brains are hard-wired for the sensationalism of story: for a beginning, a middle and an end. My family’s story is stuck in the murky middle."
