Issue #226: When Chronic Illness Takes Away your Fun Identity & An Inclusive Society Benefits All as We Thrive on Diverse Contributions | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 14 August 2020. Issue #226.

In this issue: Not all disabilities are visible so don’t make assumptions. Small acts of kindness can seem like a huge act of mercy to someone who’s in pain. I can only do what I can do as a person with chronic illness, and flow through life in a different sort of way. An inclusive society only serves to benefit all parties as we thrive on diverse contributions as human beings. Always trust in your body and in your pain; don’t let anyone brush you off as it can be life-threatening. When you know that you’ve had quality time with your grandchildren, as your table is filled with glitter remnants and more. Pacing and spreading your rest time out over days are vital for preventing pain flares. Managing multiple chronic conditions can feel like herding cats as they are never in sync and are unpredictable. When chronic illness takes away your perceived identity as a fun, sporty and social person. There is no handbook that teaches you how to be a good parent whilst managing chronic illness, in relation to letting go of guilt and setting boundaries for your health.
