The beast of balance.

Posted Feb 13 2012 1:28pm
If you've got 5-minutes, check out this honest and humble piece by Lily Altavena on balancing her Crohn’s disease flare-ups as a student at NYU: When Chronic Illness Interrupts the Rhythms of College .

Lily does a great job of shedding some light on the intensity of living far from home, in a new city, with obligations that sometimes no one else can help you with (even if they really want to). They certainly do add up quickly with the burdens of such a tremendously unpredictable disease and it seems like she handles it all quite stoically.
