I have a chronic illness. I am 45 and have had it for 40 yrs. I didn't even know I was depressed until a couple of years ago. I spent sooooooo many years in denial about
both of my illnesses, Crohn's Disease and Depression. The family here has helped me more than I can ever give in return. Again, welcome and I look forward to getting to know you better.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
