In brief: What is the meaning?
It's important to look at what having a chronic illness means to you.
What judgments do you, or others, hold about what it says about you? Is it really true? Chronic illness can actually be a way to look at your life and reassess where you are, how you are living and what's important. It can help you see what needs adjusting and can ultimately help you enhance your life.
