Life can be very serious when you have a chronic illness. Your symptoms, medical appointments, and the fatigue can take up most of your life. Try to create time to play. Play reminds us that we are human, engages a creative side of our brain that may develop problem-solving skills, and best of all, relaxes us. Fly a kite, play board games with your kids, take a minute to stomp through puddles. It’ll make you feel better.
