The subject of chronic illness is messy. We can’t make it cultured, chic, or delicate. But what we do is put our ‘selves’ into our blogs. A vulnerable opening into one person’s pain. The ‘chronic illness blog’ reflects with the light and beauty of the person behind it…Not unlike a spoon.The 'chronic illness blog; reflects with the light and beauty of the person behind it.
