Coping with chronic illness

I’ve laughed and I’ve cried about my losses from lupus. I was robbed and lupus was the thief. This column will be about coping with challenges posed by lupus or any other chronic illness.

Does that mean we should mourn and feel sorry for ourselves forever? No. Years ago, a wise friend said to me “It’s okay to get on your pity-pot and feel sorry for yourself. But you need to put a statute of limitations on how long you’re going to stay there.”

There are many ways people cope with having a chronic illness; I’ve just scratched the surface. To be honest, I’d love to hear how others cope, manage or thrive and get along in spite of chronic illness: NOT JUST LUPUS. This blog is yours!
