  1. Any expansion of energy with chronic illness, whether it was a happy activity or otherwise, eats into our daily quota and can lead to a pain flare.
  2. Empathy is a key trait to seek in a doctor; to be seen as a human being who is in real need of care, and to be treated with dignity.
  3. Learning to relish home as a place of sanctuary with chronic illness, and to find contentment in that.
  4. If you’re struggling over whether you should use a wheelchair because of chronic pain despite being able to walk, every single blog I’ve read so far has had no regrets.
  5. Oral spray vitamins are easy way to get nutrients into your body, with absorption rates up to three times faster than pills or capsules.
  6. How to reframe our thoughts positively in a way that doesn’t run away from the problem, but to adapt and rise above it.
  7. The grief of isolation with chronic illness, and some joy we found with increased accessibility online, where we felt like part of society again.
  8. EMDR therapy and facing a traumatic past filled with guilt, fear, resentment, and a deep sadness.
  9. We can be both angry at our circumstances and humbled by them at the same time.
