What does the word “well” mean to someone who has been unwell for so long?

She is an author of extraordinary success. Laura Hillenbrand’s Seabiscuit and Unbroken are literary phenomenons. Hillenbrand wrote the books while besieged by chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME/CFS, which has at times ravaged her like a tidal wave. Stricken in 1987, she has endured vertigo and exhaustion so severe that for many years she was incapacitated and housebound.

For this special issue of Stanford Medicine on well-being, Paul Costello was curious: What does the word “well” mean to someone who has been unwell for so long? Executive editor Paul Costello spoke with Hillenbrand about her illness, her newfound strengths and how she is leaving frailty behind.

Mission Statement

The Health Improvement Program (HIP) aims to create a culture of wellness and increase employee productivity by empowering individuals to be self-managers of their health. It models the science of healthy living by using translational research to promote wellness. Our primary work involves Stanford University faculty and staff, but our programs are shared and utilized around the world.
