We created this site as a resource for people living with chronic health conditions. You can read about specific issues that affect most people living with chronic illnesses like shame, social isolation, and helplessness. You can check out the blog for articles related to living with chronic illness. You can find out about therapy. Another great place to start is to check out the Living With Chronic Illness Handbook here. Finally, please feel free to reach out with any questions.

We know that your well-being does not have to depend solely on your physical condition. We know this because we have helped hundreds of people with different chronic health conditions and we know this from my own personal experiences of living with a chronic illness.
