My daily routine living with . . . tell us about your health experience

Each week, The Irish Times will publish one of the stories we receive from readers

People living with a medical condition must often feel it is them against the world – and that they are the only ones going through a never-ending daily grind to control the illness, and protect themselves from it progressing.

There also seems to be little understanding from those lucky enough to be free of serious health problems as to how a medical condition can affect daily life.

So we thought it might be useful to give people the opportunity to share their experiences of how they cope – by quite simply telling us about they cope each day. For example, 13-year-old Benat told us about a typical day living with Cystic Fibrosis. and Gary wrote about living with Parkinson's Disease.

If you would like to share your routine, you can do so using the form above.


We publish a submission regularly.

Contact details will not be shared.

Thank you.
