You may have noticed I’ve been missing in action. You may not have noticed, too. That’s okay. Either way, I’ve been taking a well-deserved vacation this past weekend. Okay, not exactly a vacation, since I’ll be helping write about it over on Simply Southern Mom, but it was pretty relaxing anyway.
One of the questions I get asked the most about this blog is “how do you travel so much when you’re chronically ill?” (Another common question is “how do you travel so much with a baby?” but that’s for a later post.)
Traveling while chronically ill definitely requires more planning than traveling as a healthy person. However, there are ways to make it work, depending on your illness and your plans. I can’t jet off to the Caribbean whenever I want to— partly because plane trips make me flare, partly because they’re expensive and I am broke— but I manage to see the world anyway.
