This has not been my experience. I’m not a relationship expert, but my husband and I are are celebrated our 12th anniversary this year, which is a great blessing.

(Yes, I know you’re frantically adding up, trying to work out how old I am, I’m 29.)

There are challenges to living and loving with a chronic illness, I’m living with many of them, but it is far from impossible.
