When I was in college I began to get tired quickly and dealt with painful joints. I firmly believed that that being over-stressed and obese caused it and, once I graduated and got a boring, monotonous job it would go away. I was wrong! I didn't get as far as I wanted in college due to my illness and now years later, I still am learning how to live with a new normal that is anything but normal.

My articles used to focus on finance, but I made the choice to switch to chronic illness. From help with wellness to helping caregivers cope, this hub is for all us lifers that have no choice but to embrace this new part of ourselves.
