Web Resources for People with Chronic Illnesses

I have come across some interesting and helpful websites for people with chronic illnesses, especially ones that are not easily diagnosed by medical doctors. These can be helpful for people who are looking for answers and resources for their ailment.


I wanted to share them with you. If you come across any additional websites that you think would be helpful, I would love to hear about them. Please include them in the comment section below.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME can interfere with many aspects of life.

I have also seen many people get support and ideas for treatment and social media sites like Facebook. You can find them by typing in the type of illness you have and joining the groups. There are many chronic illnesses that affect people; here are just a few of the chronic illnesses that are hard to treat and get support around.


Hope for people with chronic illnesses?

Hopefully, more research can be conducted and more treatments developed for chronic illnesses. It seems as though our medical system prefers surgery and pharmaceutical answers to chronic illnesses rather than a well-balanced, holistic approach. Nonetheless, the more we speak up for and advocate for people with chronic illnesses, the more attention will be paid and the more options we will have.
