Chronic Illness & Grief



By Jo Moss in A Journey Through The Fog.


Each month a fellow blogger (A Chronic Voice) hosts a ‘Link-up party’. It is a monthly get-together for anyone with a chronic illness. An opportunity to share, to listen, and to learn from one another. It’s a great way to provide insight into life with chronic illness, from many different points of view. A Chronic Voice provides 5 writing prompts each month, and we use these prompts as inspiration.

August’s prompts are: Capturing, Financing, Controlling, Exchanging and Motivating.
