So I know you might already be rolling your eyes. The idea of being healthy while also having a chronic, incurable illness probably seems impossible, right? How can you be healthy when—by definition—you are always sick?
Well, there's an ancient Chinese saying that goes, "One disease, long life. No disease, short life," meaning that a person who knows what is wrong with their body will take action to care for themselves, thereby prolonging their life. On the other hand, a person who believes their body is in perfect condition might lack the motivation to cultivate healthy wellness habits. I know this was the case for me.
