Scripting Change is a unique project with a wonderful cause, but beyond that, they have brought together compelling pieces, which, I think, effectively reflect the various facets of living with chronic conditions.

I was quite impressed by the overall collection of evocative, and at times heartbreaking, works, and (for the sake of transparency) I'm thrilled to have a couple pieces included myself.

Seeing Past Sickness is a collection of 17 pieces varying between poetry and short stories on getting over or past illness and sickness. It is worth noting that all proceeds to this collection go to a foundation that provides scholarships for students affected by chronic illness.

Commenting on 17 pieces will make this a lengthy commentary so I'll comment on what I believe are the 'bestest' pieces in this collection.

The opening piece to Seeing Past Sickness is a poem titled 'Bridge' by Seker Salis

Shelves: poetry, short-stories
Note: I have a short vignette included in this collection of short stories and poetry.

I enjoyed quite a few of the included pieces. Each paints a different picture of hope through illness. Some are funny, some are sad, some are both, and some are neither.
