Chronic Illness
Chronic Illness

Chronic illnesses affect 6 out of 10 adults in the world, according to the CDC. They can range from easily-manageable, to terminal. Some are visible, some aren’t. Many of them involve pain, and other symptoms, that can make life very difficult. My intentions for this page are two-fold..or maybe three-fold? Brain fog is preventing the correct word, and while I could just wait for it to pass, or come back and edit this later- I’d rather just be real.

This page is for those with chronic illnesses to have somewhere to:
  • Find support and writings about living with chronic illnesses to help you feel not so alone
  • Get helpful tips and links to informative articles that are realistic ways of managing your illness
  • Send friends and family to learn about living with chronic illnesses to increase their understanding

If you are in pain and need a distraction, here are some resources for you:

Dida's Distractions: This is an attempt to help you cope with pain, anxiety, cravings, or anything else you may need distracted from. Simple online games
Using Distractions As Coping Mechanisms: Tools for Chronic Illness, Mental Illness, & Recovery

I am adding links and information as quickly as I am able. Please send me an email if there is a specific condition you want to know more about, and I’ll do my best to get those resources added quickly.

For now, my own writings are available. They are mostly about Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, and Anxiety.

Writings about living with chronic illness, anxiety, & PTSD, as well as current events, addiction/recovery, mental health in general, relationships, parenting, and realistic finance with extreme money-saving techniques.
