I started Chronic Conversations as an outlet for me. For the majority of my life, I’ve been extremely quiet about my physical and mental health issues. As I started seeing other people open up, I decided to do it myself.
At first, it felt like I was complaining or seeking attention. But then I realized how many more people were in a similar place.
I soon realized how therapeutic it was. I was able to put aside the nagging thoughts about “being a complainer,” and look at it more objectively.
