In the last decade we have researched with participants who live with a chronic illness. An emerging theory of transition is the outcome of at least 20 studies. Transition shows that that people can and do move on when a chronic condition intervenes or disrupts their lives. Talking about one's condition in a supportive and safe environment in one way transition can be facilitated. This paper is about story telling in participatory action research with a focus on one particular study: Look, Think, Act: Indigenous stories about living with diabetes in collaboration with Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal Health Workers from the Port Lincoln Community of South Australia.
