How you define your community is up to you-
your town, your neighborhood, your church or
religious group, your friends, your support group,
others that share a common interest,
and even your on line wellness community.
A sense of community so important to our emotional and spiritual well-being. In fact having social support, caring people or someone you can share your difficulties with is the single most important factor contributing to health in chronic conditions.
