Life changes when you’re diagnosed with a chronic illness. You have to make room for doctor’s appointments, treatments, physical therapy, hospitalizations, and the like while still trying to keep up with your family, your home, your job, and all the things important to you. All this is done while you struggle with the symptoms and complications of your illness.
When I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease over 20 years ago, I thought that would be the end of uncertainty. It wasn’t. And as the years go on and my health becomes even more complicated, the uncertainty only increases.
So I am on a quest to do as my pastor has said God wants us to: move from pain to peace. My goal is to be chronically peaceful rather than chronically unsettled. Chronically Zen.
