EA released a big game update on 11/10/20 and this mod has not been updated yet, so use at your own risk until I get I can do that. Sorry for the inconvenience!

"This sim is chronically ill. Chronic illnesses can't be cured. You just have to learn to live with the symptoms."

This is a trait that simulates life with a chronic illness. It is a reward trait, so it does not take up one of the three personality trait spots. Teens through elders can buy it from the rewards store for 100 points.

Sims with this trait become tired more quickly than other sims. They get random moodlets for pain, feeling sick, and having cognitive dysfunction known as "brainfog." When this happens, logic skill is lowered until the moodlet expires.

They have a chance of having uncomfortable moodlets for overdoing it when engaging in physical activity, having an upset stomach after eating, and having a painful reaction to yoga.

They have two unique socials, and get whims to take naps, sleep it off, and treat sickness with medicine.

I based this trait off my own experience with having mixed connective tissue disease (an autoimmune condition) and fibromyalgia (a pain disorder). There are many different chronic illnesses and symptoms and I certainly could not encompass them all in one trait. Your experience with chronic illness is likely to be very different than mine, even if we have similar conditions, so this trait may not represent your personal experience.

I did not make the trait as severe as my conditions are, simply because I felt that having disabling levels of chronic illness probably wouldn't be much fun to play. However, if enough people express interest in a "hard mode" I can certainly make a second version that's more severe. If that's something you're interested in, please leave me a comment or send an email to [email protected].

Currently the mod has an English and a French version, translated by Kimikosoma. You only need to download one.

I hope you enjoy this trait. Take care, and happy simming!
