Chronic Illness

There are many different types of chronic illnesses people are suffering from. For people who have one or more chronic illnesses it often helps to connect with others who are suffering from the same or similar illness. One helpful way of doing this is via blogs and websites. I hope the list below will be helpful towards that end - though the list is not by any means exhaustive!
