Real illness is rarely like that. Sometimes even successful treatment doesn’t cure you; it just makes life go from ‘Star Wars Episode I-level awful’ to ‘Star Wars Episode III-level bearable.’ Sometimes illness doesn’t teach you anything, or make you a better person. But because so many of us rely on the quick and/or life-affirming versions of illness we’ve seen on television and in movies, we tend to discourage real-life experiences when they don’t match up. Cancer sufferers discover that people don’t want to listen when they express understandable feelings of anger or depression, because everyone expects people with cancer to be strong and courageous so that we can repeat their uplifting stories in email forwards. People who are sick for years might find that friends who were understanding at first gradually start to drift away, as if they’re thinking, ‘Didn’t you have surgery already once? Isn’t that story arc over yet? For God’s sake why aren’t you doing a fun run?’

YEP.  Injuries, disease, and illness - “what doesn’t kill you… sometimes, just wrecks you”.   For some things, you just get to hold on and that’s about it.

"My family’s really supportive. My mum, when I got down to the final seven for the character of Sansa Stark, said to my dad "I don’t know if we should let her do this." and my dad was like,"Any opportunity that any of the kids get, they have to take them." My dad has always been very supportive of everything that I do." - Sophie Turner  for Nylon Magazine Singapore (July 2014)
