Chronic illness is such a broad category. I apologize for that. But I imagine there are many issues that overlap. Grief, for example, is likely similar. This page of my blog is dedicated to my oldest daughter KC. What seemed to start with Mono, has turned into a lifelong (according to specialists) autonomic dysfunction. I will go into more detail of her specific condition, but more importantly I will discuss the emotional effects and life lessons learned from having a child with chronic illness.
