Why Am I Doing This?
The original name for this blog was PATHOLOGIC HEALTH. It was rather catchy, I thought. The reason, of course, is that I write about “wellness” related subjects from the perspective of one who is both a pathologist and, pathologic (i.e. there is a significant pathology named cystic fibrosis that I live with day in and day out). Many would say I harbor other pathologies, but I’m going to ignore them.
Cystic fibrosis, for those of you who don’t know, is not a friendly disease to have. I don’t want this blog to be about CF, though, so if you want to learn about my lifelong ‘opportunity’, go to www.CFF.org
Instead, I am going to write about being well, even when you are sick. It sounds wrong, I know. But another thing I know is that I live a healthy lifestyle and because of that (and other factors out of my control) I do extremely well living a relatively normal life with a nasty, often devastating illness.
I am a wellness coach now. I coach people who have health problems to live the healthiest that they can. So I will write about what comes up in my coaching world and in areas that interest me such as:
parenting when you are ill
…you get the point.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned as my son, Phoenix, and I figure out how to put videos of specific exercises for those people in the Stanford/Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Exercise Program into this blog.
