How Can I Become More Resilient?

The good thing is, that even people with chronic illness can develop resilience. Warning: it does require work on your part. Luckily, some of the work may not feel like work at all… it just requires consistent commitment to it.

We fight against it, struggling more and more, sinking deeper and deeper. But do you know how to actually get out of quicksand in real life?
