Self-Care And Chronic Illness


Recently, I launched a free self-care e-course. In my free courses, I send daily lessons, but before we start anything I ask a “pre-homework” question where I encourage the students to e-mail me back with their main concern or past issue with this topic. So in this case, I asked what the hardest part of practicing self-care has been in the past. More than a third of the responses have been “chronic illness”. I was blown away by how common that answer was. I realized I had no resources like blog articles or podcasts to reference for these people. I didn’t have any specific answers for them because I don’t have chronic illness, but I really wanted to have those answers so I outsourced it.

In this episode, I interview two women: Yvonne Marcus and Brittany Krok, both of whom have dealt with chronic illness for a decade. We talk about:

  • Self-care in general
  • Struggles with self-care as it relates to chronic illness
  • Misrepresentations of self-care in education with a lack of consideration for chronic illness
  • Misconceptions about chronic illness and ways to correct them
  • Advice for people beginning the difficult journey of finding a diagnosis or dealing with how chronic illness affects their lives

  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
