Living with a chronic illness can be a lot like riding a roller coaster. Some days your illness is “in check” and you have a positive outlook on life. Then, other days you may be experiencing a flare of symptoms, a bad side effect of a medicine, or simply a grueling day. On those days finding things to be positive about can be challenging. Working past your challenges will show you that you are not defined by your illness. You have the power to decide how you will live your life.
