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 landed a nice, boring monotonous job it would go away so that I could enjoy my life. 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 the shadow that chronic illness and pain.tries to cast over me.

While my hubpage articles used to focus on finance, I made the choice to switch to the vast number of complications associated with chronic illness ranging from medications, finance diet, lifestyle choices and the impact chronic illness has on loved ones and caregivers. After all, chronic illness isn't the cold and it isn't an acute injury. Once you're chronically ill, you and those that care about you live with it for the ret of your life.

The hubs I write are dedicated to helping other 'sickies' deal with this new life. Maybe you'll teach me a thing or two too.
