Thinking about life with a chronic illness

Tonight I am thinking about living life with a chronic illness. Chronic illness is as annoying as it sounds. Imagine being very nasal and slowly saying the word C H R O N I C. Yep, that pretty much sums up the feeling. I am writing this blog as a way to reach out to others who are journeying through life with difficult health problems. Also, as a way to sometimes vent the frustrations that life with illness presents. Such as when well meaning friends say things that they think should help you...but because they do not understand the suffering of walking through each day with an illness presents...their well meant advice...only adds to the frustration and pain, and shows a total misunderstanding of how difficult life is when you are "dancing as fast as you can," and still can't keep up with the crowd. If anyone has a comment on positive ways of dealing with this, please feel free to join in.

I'm also writing this as a way to express how God's love carries me through both the best and worst of days and I need to remember to keep this as the central focus of my day. Well that pretty much sums up this first post!

"But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. O my Strength, I sing praise to you; you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God. Psalm59:16-17
Blessings to you this day!
