About Life Effects: Personal Stories, Insights, and Tips about Living with Chronic Illness

Living with a long-term condition affects your life in many ways. Whether you’ve been diagnosed or a loved one, the impact of chronic illness can be far-reaching and seemingly never-ending.

Sometimes, it helps to hear from those who live with the same condition, who’ve been in the same position you may be in now. Life Effects contributors strive to make every day count, despite chronic illness and the burden it may put on them. They hope their content helps you do the same, so we can be all in for better health.
