Chronicles of Life with Multiple Sclerosis
A fine example of the reality of what LGBT couples face throughout their lives and the realities of chronic illness for everyone, and the extra difficulties faced by LGBT couples. Zach Wahls talks about his two moms, one of whom was diagnosed with MS and the trials of dealing with her treatment etc while her “wife” was not legally her wife and how the hospitals treated her. Showing the true commitment that can exist between two people when something as serious as chronic illness enters their lives, regardless of sexuality, race, or any of the other things people judge us humans for.
Great interview and sounds like a book I want to read 4 times. Chronic illness, raising children, life, all hard enough… to have people tell you you have no rights in relation to your life partner? Damn. Doctors, Nurses, Health Care professionals have witnessed too many of us going it alone to deny love and support from any direction it is delivered. Judge yourself people. Anyway. “My Two Moms” by Zach Wahls. Check it out.
