I want to be Normal

One of the hardest parts of living with a chronic illness is to continue living every day by the world's definition of "Normal."  It may be singly the hardest part, aside from having enough money for doctor's appointments, supplements, medicines, and special food requirements.  You have to go on living even when you are tired… Continue reading I want to be Normal
