The experience of living with multiple chronic conditions
The first series of the NCD Diaries project illustrates the realities and experiences of living with multiple chronic conditions; that is, either two or more NCDs, or NCDs and an infectious disease (e.g. HIV, TB, COVID‑19, etc.).
For 11 years, I have lived as a care giver to my husband with renal disease and have developed Psoriasis and mental health myself. I'm sharing my story because I want to voice the concerns of my journey and those of others who are going through the same trauma. The patient, care giver and the entire family goes through a roller coaster ride. We have to search our own way through these dark times.
