Restoring a sense of control
Many factors can affect the course of a chronic illness, including heredity, lifestyle (e.g., stress, diet, exercise) and even environment. As a result, it's difficult to predict how you may feel from one day to another. The process of living well despite suffering from a chronic illness begins with understanding your illness. What you know about your condition can make a vast difference to how you approach each day. You can start by collecting information about our illness - and remember that there is a wealth of information out there !
