Resources and Ideas

This is my digital garden 🌱

These pages are a permanent work in progress! Over the years and I’ve built up quite a collection of information, techniques and strategies for managing a chronic illness. I’m gradually adding these to these pages together with ideas from my reading and some of my own thoughts. 

These are extracts from my own notes.  They are occasionally incomplete, personal and develp over time.  However, I hope that they may give you some ideas for coping with your own particular situation and living your life as fully as possible with your chronic health condition.

Key: types of note

🧰 Resources: self-help materials; apps; tutorials etc.
