Since I am lucky enough to not have a chronic illness I had a friend help me with the story. She was an inspiration, she gave me story ideas, and told me about her life. Learning about the life of a person with a chronic illness opened my eyes, and made me realize just how strong you have to be to live like that.
It’s something a lot of people have, but not many people know about it. Joy’s Journal was set about to change that, and to show people that even if you are different in some ways, you still are just like them.
So thank you very very much to that friend, and everyone who helped me or read these posts.
