"The challenge of living with chronic illness isn't always apparent when you're first diagnosed. This is just the beginning. It takes time to understand your illness, the treatment options available, and how living with illness will affect your life and the lives of your partner and family."
 
"No one knows the journey you and your illness have taken better than you do, and no ones knows more than you, the challenges you've met and the wins you've achieved. Acknowledge and embrace them. Celebrate your courage."
 
These words were written by Pauline Salvucci in her article, titled "Living With Chronic Illness".

Thanks for the link Teri. Very true and very inspiring. Having a chronic illness is not easy but, at least for me, I feel that it has made me a stronger person then I was before being diagnosed.
