It’s tough to live with a chronic illness, and even worse if you have multiple. Here are some things you need to know about living with chronic illness:
- You feel like you live outside of society – in fact, you do live outside of society if your illness makes you housebound or bedbound.
- You’re no longer considered ‘normal’ by people, just because you’re different.
- You lose friends because they don’t want to ‘deal with’ your illness.
- No one believes you, especially if your illness is invisible.

I decided to write this eBook all about what it’s like living with chronic illness to spread awareness of chronic and invisible illnesses, and to show society what living with chronic and invisible illnesses is really like. This is what you need to know about living with chronic illness.
