What is the worst chronic disease/illness that you have?

    Keep in mind the word chronic.



    Me: Probably a mild case of dander every once in a while. Cold sores too.

    Migraine headaches, but I don't get them as often as I used to. They're horrible.

    That's a bad one. There are probably 12-step programs, but you have to WANT to change.

    Some things get my dander up but i would not say it is chronic, i mean not enough to punch some one out.

    chronic ear and sinus pain, and what appears to be either pernicious anemia or maybe a methylation problem.

    Mmm, the only thing that really happens often and is negative would be depression...

    Oh, crud! I have that one too! Though, I don't think it's as far progressed for me yet as it is for you. :biggrin:

    I'm afraid I'm chronically sexy and modest. Unfortunately its not contagious.

    Lately every time I get a cold (which is more frequently, probably 3-4 times a year), it goes away quickly, but I cough for a long time afterwards. It's a dry cough though and lasts for about a month after my cold. I've found taking Nyquil seems to help though.
