I was born with a chronic gastrointestinal disease that has slowly worsened as time has progressed. At this point my digestive system is almost completely paralyzed. I was taking a shower the other day and had an epiphany. Most people write about the negative aspects of their disease, so I decided to put a twist on it and write about some of the positive aspects of living with a chronic disease. Hopefully this article will inspire others, who are suffering, to take the bad of their disease and turn it into good for others.
