chronic disease -- mostly keyword

I'm often confronted by requests for articles about some aspect of the treatment of patients with "chronic diseases." As you probably know "Chronic Disease"[mesh] is not alway used to index articles discussing a specific chronic disease. For this reason, I've had to come up with alternate ways of searching for the chronic disease concept. The search statement I created is so long that PubMed has trouble with it. I've found that I have to divide it in half and OR together the results of the two halves. Here are the two halves:

1st half:
