Denial-A Coping Mechanism

Lora, Cindy and Marcia Marin

Definition of Denial.  “The action of declaring something to be untrue.”

I must admit, at times, I lived in denial.  Denial isn’t a bad place, only if you stay there forever, but for me, that place gave me solace for a short time. Article on Denial:  mayoclinic.org/healthy/denial

When situations became unbearable, that is where I sought to be.  When Lora died because of Huntington’s disease (HD), when Marcia had a stroke because of Huntington’s disease, when Cindy was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, I went to my special place, denial, to regroup, gather strength and recharge. What is HD? https://hdsa.org/#

To be present and help my three sisters-in-law have the highest quality to their life, for as long as possible, escaping to my denial place helped me cope and face another day.

The nonfiction book I published was written in Lora, Marcia, and Cindy’s honor.  100% of the proceeds are being donated to the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) to help in the fight against the cruelest disease on the planet.  Author website:  http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com
