"After discovering Dear Diagnosis, I proposed clients to write to their illnesses and they grant it with surprise and curiosity. People produced very creative writings. A woman wrote some post-its to a cancer which doesn't deserve many words; a young man wrote a chat conversation using two different devices (cell phones) for having a talk with diabetes; a woman wrote a long letter to a "grey endometriosis" using colours to be different from illness; a couple created a lovely message to infertility. The effects were awareness, new relationships with their illnesses, new points of view, empowering alternatives, and the evolution of more positive narratives regarding life with chronic conditions."
