I want to share my friend’s post and her struggle through life with a chronic illness. You may never see the symptoms but they are there and people need to understand the importance of life and the many things others deal with. Be compassionate. Be kind. Be honest. And be you! Don’t let someone tell you how to live when YOU are the only one to know what is the best route.

While you’re struggling to find your place in this world and what is right for you, don’t take it out on others who are different. I have a chronic illness and it effects my whole body at times. Whether I’m tired or sore or in pain, I’m still a person who deserves respect. Read what Katrina has to say about her illness on her blog below.

These photos were taken within 24 hours of each other. In the first photo, I look like a happy and productive person. I’m a young woman painting my first house with my husband. -Katrina
