Welcome and get ready to journal with this week’s new chronic illness journal prompt!
Each week this post will be updated with a writing prompt for your personal use.
Why use journal prompts? Because sometimes, chronic illness symptoms and pain blind us from things. They could hide or diminish something wonderful or make us just not want to think about anything tough.
My chronic illness journal prompts are designed to make you think. Sometimes deeper than others, but always about things that you should think about, even if you don’t realize it.
These prompts are free, and new ones will be added weekly.
