missing my life chronic illness
 Welcome to Missing My Life!!

When I first set out to start this blog I came up with a name: Kate's Chronic Illness Chronicles.

That's what I originally picked, but it was a little to tongue twisty for me. It does, however, describe what this blog all about.

My daily adventures, past experiences, support and advice are what I hope to bring here for you. I want to provide information, tips and anything else I can find to help in the world of chronic illness. I hope I can bring a little humor too.

So pull up a chair and enjoy. And please read my About page to find out more about this site and why it's here. And check out the My Story page to see how I got to where I am. I promise there's something for everyone!!
