There is nothing better than taking a few moments out of your day to get inspired. Especially during tough times. At the end of every month, I plan out my month ahead and use inspirational quotes to plan out my goals. I put together a list of the best of the best inspiring chronic illness quotes from our featured readers and writers for July.

Guide Dogs for the Blind: A Faithful Friend in the Dark

I reached for my phone to call for help, but there was no reception in the tunnel. Then, I felt Madge rub her head against my knee.

Fortunately for me, when she saw my distress, she abandoned her training.
