changed my life. I came to understand that illness can also imply

talked to very different men and women in Germany suffering from
serious illness, about turning points in their life, experiences
with pain and fear, about the power of love, will to live and joy
of living and about new insights through their sickness.
The message of all these diverse experiences: There is no one single way of how to cope with illness but the understanding that every individual takes a different road back to life, to find some new dimension of life quality. “I found my soul, my inner doctor” said Nora O. in our interview.
