Growing up is tough enough for teens and young adults, but living with a chronic disease adds even more complications, a panel of CHOC Children’s patients tell CHOC Radio.
In podcast No. 22, Cody, 23; Megan, 17; and Cole, 14 discuss aspects of life with a chronic illness:
- The emotional impact of growing up with a longstanding condition
- How an illness affects school, friendships and family
- What advice they’d offer a newly diagnosed teen or young adult
- Hopes and fears for the future.
