Here we are, the fourth and final week (for now) of our online community sentence completion project, as part of Thought-Provoking Thursday (or for today Saturday).

What can I say I like to live on the wild side of life, which in reality means self-care has become my priority the last few days, so I am running a bit late :-).

We have came together to share our voice and to listen to others. We have completed sentences relating to human experience, highlighting our common humanity, including the fact that each of us are unique in how we relate to and perceive, ourselves, each other and the world in general.

We have completed the sentences:

Mental health is…

Suicide is…

Physical health is…

Continuing to take an holistic approach to our overall health and well-being, I thought it would be good this week to reflect together about another more common  and stigmatized experience than we perhaps would like to admit – Chronic Illness.

Today I would like us to finish this sentence:

Chronic illness….



Once again here are a few tips to help you along the way.

Tip 1: try not to over think it, write down what first comes to your mind.

Tip 2: you may find yourself writing one word, one sentence or a whole paragraph. Do whatever you feel comfortable with.

Tip 3: there are no right or wrong answers, just the thoughts and associations that come to you in the moment.

Tip 4: your response may be intellectually based or feelings based. It is about sharing something you feel comfortable with, that is respectful yet authentic to you.

I will also compile (anonymously) again as many answers as I can so we can see each other’s reflections and continue this conversation with others if we wish.

Much peace, hope and kindness

Dr. Krissy
