What I have learned from Elaine Benton

Elaine Benton has her own blog and is also a regular blogger for the Huffington Post. She lives with and has learned to cope with two diseases, Parkinson’s and Gaucher.

I quote from one of her blogs: “Life is what you make of it. You have the power to live and enjoy life in spite of ill-health. Although some illnesses cannot be cured, you can make the decision to live your life to the full and embrace the positive while acknowledging one’s disability.

Living with two diseases makes me look at the world in a very different way, and sometimes I get impatient with people who gripe about inconsequential matters.”
