That time I was sick for 4 months straight before a worldwide pandemic.
Throughout the years of being diagnosed with numerous autoimmune/chronic diseases, I’ve learned that it can be a complete mind-fuck. Sorry for the bluntness, but it’s really the only way to describe it. What you think is good news is bad news; what should be…

This is a little bit of a tough blog post for me to write: I am not the most successful at workplace or professional self-care (full disclaimer: that’s probably putting it lightly). I love my job, and I love my career even more. I feel so grateful for so many things that have to do with my professional life. I’m grateful to have a stable job; I’m grateful for my wonderful health insurance; I’m grateful for flexibility and understanding leaders and coworkers; I’m grateful to be able to do what I love every day.

Happy Wednesday, friends! It’s time for another guest blog! As I stated in the first guest blog, if you are interested in guest blogging on Chronically Kristin, please email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This blog post is a tad overdue; to be honest, I think I have been apprehensive to talk about getting a second opinion, what that means, potential outcomes, and everything else that has been happening surrounding the appointment. It almost didn’t feel real that…
Hi everyone! So as most of you know, I’ve spent the past few weeks blogging for ePharma. The conference was last week and I really enjoyed live-coverage and blogging for the sessions. I have a full recap coming soon, sometime this week. However, here’s…
