Still helping …

… A Lifetime of Reading Oliver Sacks, Before and After My Diagnosis | Literary Hub. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I suspect that Sacks’s work may have had a quieting effect. Not only do his stories put the relatively mild incursions of MS I felt in my early years of the illness in context, they may have imposed on me the desire to be more like the stoical players in his surprisingly polite medical dramas. Whenever possible, at least.
