Letters: Coping with pain, publicly

May 29, 2012

Re "Private pain made public," Opinion, May 24

I can understand Meghan Daum's qualms regarding the public dissemination of information about a personal medical crisis such as that suffered by Aimee Copeland, who contracted necrotizing fasciitis. However, I can equally imagine that the blog Aimee's father wrote during her ordeal was the way he was able to cope with the horrifying spectacle of the body of his daughter being systematically hacked away, piece by precious piece.

Fortunately for Aimee, she did not have to witness this carnage as it unfolded, but her father did.
