It is that time of year again! The time of year we are supposed to cook, clean, spend money, and expected to remember this is the happiest time of the year and put a smile on our face! (Do you sense the sarcasm in my voice?) The Holidays are a challenge for a healthy person, but for someone with a Chronic Medical Condition the challenge can be overwhelming. There are ways to insure YOU enjoy the Holiday because YOU deserve that and sometimes that means YOU saying "NO!" All you type A personalities that want to please everyone I know it is hard to say "NO" But this year YOU are going to be in control and YOU are going to enjoy the Holidays just like everyone else. For more advice and holiday tip read our blog post!
