Resilience is needed to cope with chronic illness

20180827_173303
My wife, Deborah Brogan, MD, was a board certified psychiatrist. We were married when she was 28 years old. She was not expected to live beyond the age of 40. She lived to be 61 years old and did private practice until she was 58 years old. She also worked at Arizona State University on their eating disorders team for 22 years after we were married. Prior to all of this, she worked at Albany County mental health clinic in albany, New York for 3 years. Prior to this, she spent seven years with medical school and a psychiatric residency.

She had severe juvenile diabetes since she was 12 years old. In 1998, 19 years before death in 2017, she had a kidney-pancreas transplant which was necessary because of the diabetes. She was hospitalized about 30 times, and continued working in between hospitalizations.

She was fond of the above “Elements of Resilience” and incorporated it into psychotherapy with her patients in private practice. It is good guidance in what to strive for to meet the challenges of life. It is a good summary of what helps me to cope with multiple sclerosis. It is the spirit I try to convey in my book, “Multiple Sclerosis Mission Remission: Healing MS Against All Odds” at
