Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions

For me my chronic conditions include the following diabetes, lymphodema, and high blood pressure. I have been cancer free for 18 years and survived a brain stem stroke I had 8 years ago.

Self-management of my conditions is very important to my good quality of life. I have learned to live with my illness but until I took this course I was only going through the motions of happiness. A lot of the time I have been angry and depressed.

I learned that it is possible to be happy when you don't just concern yourself with me me me! The class was small enough that we really got to know each other and shared, cared and listened. I am very glad I had the opportunity to attend this class.
