Aliza tries to keep a normal life, and not let the disease take control.
But probably the advice, it is exactly the advice I gave to myself, to try to have a life as normal as possible, that the sickness doesn’t take control over me. In any case, roughly speaking, but since I can give a little more advice… More concrete, more…
But mainly regarding activities, if I see that a person or the person tells me that she stopped doing whatever, I will propose to her a good movie at the cinema, read a good book, go to conferences, go to Jean-Coutu to find a friend (quote from a local pharmacy).
