We like to keep it real around here. Illness isn’t all rainbows, butterflies, and positive life lessons. So, today we are sharing the top 3 things we feel chronic illness has taken from us. We both have lost a lot due to getting sick, but Derek for the pick-me-up, spinning a major loss into a positive at the end.

A few topics we discuss include identity, passions, freedoms, social life, and even mental capacities. This episode goes deep. If you missed last week’s episode, episode 6, be sure to listen to that one. We talk about the positives of chronic illness there. A good balance to today’s negatives.
