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.

- 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:
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.
