Living with one or more chronic conditions affects your life in so many ways. The only people who really know what you are going through are those who have faced the same challenges for years.
With this in mind we created Life Effects, an initiative shaped by patients for patients. We’ll share stories about the reality of living with chronic conditions – and recognize the vital role of caregivers as they navigate the joys and demands of caregiving. We talk about what it's like with people who have actually been there. Together, we explore the latest science and thinking around your condition, and we hope you’ll find the contributors’ lived experiences, feelings and perspectives to be relevant and insightful.
