What do a Volcano and a Chronic Illness have in common?

Hey, it’s Matt from Situation Positive. I am at the Mauna Loa volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. The park was closed so this is as close as I could get. The arrow in the video shows when the vent, or volcano’s opening, is located. What do a volcano and a chronic illness have in common?

There are a few forces in life as destructive or unpredictable as a volcano. And those of you who are living with a chronic illness know that the path that your disease can be as destructive and unpredictable as a volcano. But just like those who live on the island learn to adapt, rebuild, and move forward.

The path of your illness can go the same way. Don’t let the chronic illness volcano disrupt your life. Adapt to it and do the best you can with what you’ve got. Stay positive everybody!
