What is your favorite quote?

Do or do not. There is no try. - Yoda

What is your philosophy on life and living with chronic disease?

I am still figuring it out. I am a work in progress.

Who inspires you and why?

My grandmother made a come back after almost wasting away recovering from a 5-way bypass in her 80s, quit smoking, and turned her life around. She is still alive and well at age 90. I plan to also rebuild my life.

What would your advice be to someone just beginning on a chronic disease journey?

Take each day as it comes. Let yourself feel bad when it happens, just do not keep feeling bad. Don't feel guilty. Allow yourself to smile. Spend time with friends. Do things you enjoy. The disease is not your entire life. Realize some people may not be able to handle it. Let them go gracefully.

Introduction

Hello, I'd like to make some new friends. I am thankful I made it through the hard parts.
