Elizabeth Taylor has Scoliosis and has experienced a life-time of chronic pain including almost turning blind at 21 years of age, 3 separate cases of near fatal pneumonia, and skin and brain cancer. She has changed her mind-set and has been quoted as saying:
“You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it; you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about your business of living. That’s how I have done it. There’s no other way.”
