Stories to Keep Yourself Going

There are so many amazing people out there, writing candidly and honestly about life with chronic illness, invisible (or visible) disability, and other such things.

Some make me laugh, others make me cry. Some make me fist-pump the air about what WARRIORS we can be, and still others make me promise myself to try harder.

These are some of my favourites.
