About Life Effects

Living with a long-term condition affects your life in many ways. Whether it's you, or someone in your circle of loved ones, the impact of chronic illness can be far-reaching and seemingly never-ending.

Sometimes, it helps to hear from those who've been there and know how to make every day count, despite their condition and the burden it may put on them.
