Editor’s Choice: Ring in the New Year with a Kiss from Someone Who Knows How to Support Your Chronic Illness

Happy New Year!

For our first Editor’s Choice of 2019, we want to highlight four articles from the last couple weeks. First, we have the story of young man who tested positive for the mutation that causes Huntington’s disease. Next, we hear from a spoonie on how her boyfriend has adjusted to her chronic illnesses, followed by an article on hospital pricing concerns. Last but not least, we have an article asking: what exactly are those CBD products at convenience stores.

Sit back and enjoy this week’s Editor’s Choice.
