Author and Stroke Survivor Richard Burns Shares Pieces of Advice to Those Suffering Serious Illnesses

The author assures that no one is alone in their battle.


Take one step at a time. Learn to laugh at yourself, at your mistakes.

Author Richard Burns has a lot to share about pain and recovery when he published his book “Live Or Die: A Stroke of Good Luck.” Whether you yourself have an illness or a member of your family, Richard has some life lessons he can share.
Richard was pronounced dead at age 38 but suddenly came back to life. However, he didn’t recover immediately when he came back. His doctor found out that he had cerebral hemorrhage and, when he finally recovered, Richard didn’t stop from there. He is determined to help people diagnosed with any illness.
Richard realized a lot of things after his near-death experience. It made him a better person. His secret to a quick recovery is to laugh at mistakes, to laugh at life. Life is too short to dwell on past mistakes, some of which are nearly impossible to amend. Why feel desperate when you are diagnosed with some illness? Feeling desperate when a disease strikes you is normal, but learning to ignore your illness and moving on from there creates a new feeling in you. It helps you to be more optimistic.
If positive feelings don’t help, asking yourself questions like ‘Are you happy with what you are?’ or ‘Are you better than you were?’ might help you on your road to recovery. “Being complete is what makes you happy,” according to Richard. If you already have answers to your questions, then you are on the right track to attain a happy life. Each step you take to make yourself better is a reward in itself.
One more advice that Richard shares is that when you read his book, read it like a novel, not a textbook.
