all while living with Chronic Illness


Here is another work in progress, I seem to have a lot of those LOL! I've added all the chapters of BFSU and below that I've added supplemental videos, interactive games, etc that should correspond to that chapter. I've mostly been using Teachers Domain (see post here) and How To Smile (see post here). I would love any feedback or suggestions if you've found any great resources.
