I was looking for sympathy when I sighed in sad resignation, declaring my back pain to be chronic—I.E—a burden I’ll likely carry forever no matter how many experts I consult. Ever hopeful, Rachel said she once heard a wise woman declare that the term chronic means you’ve had something for a long time. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have it forever.
And I am left to wonder: Why is it that your own words never sound quite as wise when somebody quotes them back to you?
