JoJo’s Journey: 35 Years with Chronic Illness

Written By: JoJoisms - Jul• 21•14

JOJOWHANDSSorry I haven’t posted in several weeks, but a lightning strike took out 15 electrical items in our new home last month and one of them was my computer.  It took me a few weeks to figure out that I could record a YouTube video from my iPhone and another to figure out how to post a blog entry from here.  My computer is one of the few things left to be repaired/replaced. Several of you have already viewed my newest video, but I’d love it if you’d pass it on so all those suffering with chronic illness would know they are not alone. I’ve posted it up on my About JoJo page as well as the JoJo’s Journey page. You can access them at the top of the site menu. Please pass the link along, post it on Facebook and Twitter and share it with friends and family. Lastly, please share your feedback and your own experiences either here as a comment or below the video on YouTube. Here is JoJo’s Journey: 35 years with chronic illness

    JoJo thank you for posting this. I have been going through a lot of pain. Pain that the doctor’s can’t seem to explain or help me with. All of my tests are ‘normal’ and everything appears great! But I hurt so bad that I can’t function! It is debilitating pain. I even had a doctor suggest that I needed “therapy” like it was all in my head! I have been so depressed about this. I am having more tests done next week. I am praying for answers. Again, thank you for what you are doing.

  2. JoJoisms says:

    You are entirely welcome, Donna, and I pray you will find your answers.
