desalvo coverI was thinking of this quote yesterday when I wrote my blogpost. Not sure that it entirely fits, but here it is. (Quoted by Louise DeSalvo)

“In the absence of any record of my illness, I shall write it myself. Invent it out of whole cloth. It is what a writer can do that a doctor cannot.”
