Welcome to Irene’s Site!
Hello, if you are suffering from the challenges associated with living with a chronic illness then this site is for you!
Introduce myself briefly. My name is Irene and I’m a patient with a chronic disease who still is (and probably always will have to be), on Life Support. The journey has been challenging but rewarding. For more information about me personally, see the About Author page.
Along the way, I have discovered that there are many things that we, people with chronic disease, need to know in order to live with our illness(es) both comfortably and with dignity. As well as simple techniques to make life easier and more bearable.
The purpose of this site is to assist fellow patients, and their immediate carers, with any information that helps them to manage their illness. There are many limitations that come with chronic illness but it’s not the end of the world.
This section will provide information about a wide range of Chronic Diseases and Conditions. Half-the-battle to living with any kind of illness is, knowing what it is, the causes, and understanding the complications that may come with that.
This section will be a guide to what we should eat and what to be wary of eating. There are many foods and drinks that can either improve our condition or make it worse.
Many illnesses are caused by a sedentary lifestyle and are self-caused. This section will provide tips on getting started to change for the better.
Q & A:
This is a forum where you can ask me questions. If I cannot give an adequate answer I shall research it for you; and seek help from among my many contacts of health professional friends. Ever had your doctor tell you something that doesn’t make sense? I can interpret this for you also in this forum.
The more feedback you give me, the more this site will become tailored to help you and many others with that issue.
