Were you simply living your life and then BAM! your chronic illness took a turn for the worse? Perhaps you cannot remember a day when you did not lose a little bit more of your ability to walk, talk, reach or grasp. Maybe your eyesight, hearing or memory is fading and you do not know where it will stop.
If the above describes you or someone you love, then this section is for you. Between us the Meeting Life's Challenges, LLC staff has met with limitations great and small. Some of us have progressed from walking to using a cane, a walker, and finally a wheelchair; others walk around looking perfectly normal but a whiff of someone's perfume can knock us down, quite literally. We have dealt with hearing loss, the loss of our use of our fingers and hands, depression, fatigue, low vision, and more. We have learned over time the strategies for making the most of our lives -- relapsing, remitting, progressing, or anything else.
Here we share our strategies with you. We hope they will inspire you to live life to the fullest everyday.
"We can be sure that the greatest hope for maintaining equilibrium in the face of any situation rests within ourselves." ~ Francis J. Braceland
