It isn't easy to accept getting sick. Acceptance doesn’t mean you give in to it. Acceptance takes time. It’s part of the grieving process, the part that ushers you from the past to the future.

You’ve likely experienced a myriad of emotions related to being stricken with a chronic illness. How do you deal with those emotions? Do you find healthy outlets for them or do you feel so overwhelmed that you keep them locked inside?
After being hit with a chronic illness, we may feel broken, yet we remain whole. We can embrace what the Lord does with the pieces of our lives as He meets us where we are, and then heals our hearts and leads us forward, in His time and in His way.
Coping with a chronic illness is challenging, so be gentle with yourself as you find ways to manage life. Practice self-care. Have realistic expectations. Write a letter to yourself.
