About Living Your Best Possible Life When You Have a Chronic Illness

Hello. My name is Thomas Robinson. I’m a life coach who specializes in helping people with chronic illnesses, chronic pain, and emotional pain. I chose this niches because I have a chronic illness myself – Crohn’s disease, and I have healed from a tremendous amount of emotional pain. My first three years with Crohn’s were a living hell. I’m not sure how I got through them, but I did.

During that time I kept reading about and trying different standard and alternative treatments, and I finally found a combination that worked well for me. I’m very grateful that I found those effective treatments. I also learned, in a very profound way, how to change my attitude. As a result of the combination of the treatments and the attitude change, I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life.

I decided to use what I learned to help others with chronic illnesses have the best lives they possible can. I do that by giving them the understanding they need that they often don’t get from their friends and family. I also give them some little known tools to help them change their attitudes and take care of themselves much better – and I give them the support they need, especially in the beginning, to use those tools. I get tremendous satisfaction from helping people with chronic illnesses live the best – and happiest – lives they possibly can.

I created this blog so that I could reach and help more people and also to be able to interact with people who also live with chronic illness. I hope my posts help you have a better life. I welcome your comments and feedback.

Best wishes,

Thomas Robinson – The Chronic Illness Turnaround Coach

    Hi Tom,

    I’m sorry for intruding here unannounced. You don’t know me, but…

    I am working with a close friend who has an auto-immune disorder. She’s developing a mobile application to help those who suffer from chronic illness to better (and more easily) track their symptoms. My friend, Tasha, is – at this moment – in San Francisco working with a small team to build the beginnings of a business around this kind of mobile app. I’ve been advising her on the business side and the team she’s working with at the Lean Startup Machine conference (http://sf.theleanstartupmachine.com/) is collecting input from people like you.

    So, if you have any interest, you can check out what they’re working on at http://alpha.sympleapp.com. If you click on the “Get Started” link, you’ll be asked for your input on what such an app would be useful for.

    If you’ve read this far and find that it’s interesting to anyone else you might know, please feel free to share this with them. It might be something that your blog readers might be interested in.

    Thanks for listening.
