Chronic Illness Life Lies I Tell Myself

I should be doing more and other lies I tell myself about living with psoriatic arthritis and three other debilitating chronic illnesses.

Psoriatic arthritis and my other debilitating chronic illnesses are not in my head, but they sure do a number on it. They highlight my insecurities and whisper destructive lies. One of those lies is that I should be doing more – moving my body more, doing more chores, saying yes to more appointments and experiences.

I used to believe this lie. Much of my chronic life was spent doing more of the things I did before without regard for the needs of my chronically ill body.

There are so many lies we tell ourselves, discover more of them by reading my latest article for Psoriatic-Arthritis.com here!
