Healthline.com defines Chronic Illness as "one that lasts for a long period of time and typically cannot be cured. It is, however, sometimes treatable and manageable. This means that with some Chronic Illnesses, you or your loved one can return to everyday activities.
With other Chronic Illnesses, it may be difficult to participate in everyday activities or the condition may be progressively getting worse with time.
It’s important to understand that some people with Chronic Illnesses face invisible obstacles and may look completely healthy on the outside."
What about Mental Illness
Although definitions of chronic illness differ slightly between countries and health care organizations, under the general criteria, mental illness does fall under the Chronic Illness label. These include: Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar Disorder, Personality Disorders, Anorexia, Bulimia, and Addictions.
Living With chronic illness
Whether diagnosed at birth or somewhere down the road, receiving the diagnosis of a Chronic Illness can be devastating. While I try to share honest and helpful information from my experiences, I encourage you to find professional help and reliable resources to help you in processing what comes next for you and your family in regards to your health and wellness. *Also please seek the advice of your healthcare provider for all your medical questions, concerns, and treatments.*
