Self Magazine

http://www.self.com

One thing difficult about have a chronic illness is that you can’t take everything in health/fitness magazines and use it in your own life.  Magazines are for healthy women, not chronic illness survivors. It took me a very long time to realize this.

I absolutely love reading magazines. I read Self, Fitness. Women’s health, Real simple. Glamour etc. I have taken a lot advice from these magazines.

I had to keep telling myself that I am now different. I’m not like the average woman. You can’t tell me “when you’re tired, sleep.” Because that just does not work. It’s not that easy.

Why isn’t there a magazine out there just like regular magazines but specialized for chronic illness sufferers?
