Dying is a lonely journey. Not only for the sick person but also for the family. As hard as we may try to avoid death, the truth is that we do a lousy job of it. Science and medicine will certainly postpone it, even staying healthy might seem to delay it, but the harsh reality is that death does not wait for you, it does not ask you, and it does not listen to you. Death ignores your feelings and wants; you do not matter to death…Death is the only certainty in life! We need to remember that our existence here is fragile, and we never have as much time with people as we think we do. If there is someone or someones out there that you love, don’t neglect that and don’t put off engaging with them because waits for no-one… Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child.
Tracy has opened my eyes to the world of the chronic pain sufferer. Vic hides things from me because she tries to protect me. I am so healthy and do not know or understand pain. Tracy articulates pain and her journey beautifully and I am grateful to her for sharing her painful journey with the world. It is such a valuable source of information! It has given me an insight into the dark, fearsome world of pain. Thank you Tracy and all the people who I nominated.

I recommend Tracy’s blog to everyone who is either in pain, or who has a loved one in pain.
