I want to brighten the experience of chronic illness
Chronic illness affects more than 50% of the adult western population - either directly or by affecting those we love. That number is frightening, and it is getting larger with each generation. Learning to live and cope with illness is a challenge that can easily consume a person, and it is something that our medical systems poorly prepare us to do. We tumble through the cycle of grief and acceptance, watching our lives crumble into merely survival. We put everything on hold, wait... and hope.
I spent years searching for a book that dealt with chronic illness with humor, positivity and resilience. I couldn't find one, so I wrote one. I have continued to laugh and live my life to the fullest - please join me in a fresh view of life with illness, because laughing together makes everything feel a little bit better.
So grab a cup of tea, sit back and join us for a fresh view of chronic illness and what life can be like with it.
