In This Issue:

  1. Realising that the anti-depressants prescribed by your doctor aren’t ‘happy pills’ or a sign of weakness. But medication that will help you live to fight another day with depression.
  2. Children don’t need a lot to be happy and fulfilled – it’s your love and support that matters most, which you can still give even as a mother with a chronic illness.
  3. Feeling comfortable is key to working on your mental wellness with your therapist, as you will be exploring vulnerable corners of your mind and you need to trust them.
  4. Pain management often goes beyond mere medicine to include holistic, professional, alternative and/or complementary therapies, all of which don’t come cheap.
  5. Alike Health is an app and platform that matches community members based on Patient Similarity Networks, big data, AI, medical data and more.
  6. You will definitely need more help as a person with chronic illness. The more comfortable you feel in your own skin, the easier it will be to share your concerns with others who can help.
  7. The misconception that all chronically ill people need to have a certain ‘look’.
  8. Facial pain disorders, such as Trigeminal Neuralgia, can affect everything from talking to eating, reading, listening to music, sensitivity to temperature and more.
  9. People with Fibromyalgia are very sensitive to temperature changes. The exact cause is unknown, but it is believed that their autonomic nervous system is faulty.
  10. Getting your meat and vegetables pre-prepared so you can cook a nutritious meal as a person with chronic illness.
