A personal journey through chronic illness and disability. Chronically Christmas looks at how Christmas is experienced over a number of years. From first feeling unwell, to being diagnosed. From various treatments to steroid side effects. It’s the story of one woman’s struggle coping with the many different experiences faced when fighting chronic illness.

Spoon Shortage Sue is a mum, wife and assistance dog owner, a retired secondary school teacher, who runs a successful Facebook page – Spoon Shortage Sue & Spoonie Spaniel too. She has fought chronic illness and disability for a number of years and has shared with fellow fighters offering a positive outlook to dealing with the many struggles she and others face.

She also blogs frequently at spoonshortagesue.wordpress.com.

This is her first short story, a personal account of dealing with chronic illness and disability. She is also currently writing a more in depth account which will be published in the new year.

This upbeat short story is a pleasure to read. It is a well written snapshot of chronic illness and follows Sue’s Christmases from pre- diagnosis to the present, from anxieties at being in medical limbo to acceptance and living life to the full. As a follower of Spoon Shortage Sue’s blog it is great to see how it all began. She brings a smile to many daily on FB and wonderful to read her story.
