Chronic Health Conditions



Dealing with a chronic health condition is a marathon effort that can often be taxing on multiple fronts—issues stemming from the disease itself, as well as the stress and mental fatigue that can come from constantly coping with a life-altering illness. Finding an accurate diagnosis, navigating health care systems, acquiring the needed resources for treatment, and managing unreachable expectations from others can seem like never-ending struggles that few understand. Thankfully, many options exist for coming to terms with the nature of the condition and finding relief from it, handling the ins and outs of living with it, and sometimes thriving in the face of its difficulties.
