Chronic disease is sometimes demoralizing

Because of CG(Chronic gastritis), I am feeling that my patience is wearing out and I don't know when I can recover. I am feeling frustrated almost everyday. I am wondering if I can say:

Chronic disease is sometims demoralizing.

Thanks a lot

    It's not clear which part of the sentence is troubling you: the use of 'chronic disease' as an uncountable noun; the use of 'sometimes' along with 'be'; or - and this is what I think - whether one can use the word 'demoralizing' to describe something that makes one frustrated and wears out one's patience. To that last possible query, my answer would be yes.
