We are Medicine People

If I were living in a tribal society (and had the treatments necessary to keep me alive to adulthood), I would have been selected as a shaman:

"The wounded healer is an archetype for a shamanic trail and journey. This process is important to the young shaman. S/he undergoes a type of sickness that pushes her or him to the brink of death. This happens for two reasons:
  1. The shaman crosses over to the underworld. This happens so the shaman can venture to its depths to bring back vital information for the sick, and the tribe.
  2. The shaman must become sick to understand sickness. When the shaman overcomes his or her own sickness s/he will hold the cure to heal all that suffer. This is the uncanny mark of the wounded healer.[24]" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shamanism

I remember being a small child and valuing wisdom to share to others above all other things.
At four years old I felt an urgent instinct to heal the environment. 

If you have CF, do you feel a natural instinct to heal others or use your knowledge for healing?
