Dear Pain…

A sort of love letter to pain — my gratitude to learning strength, grace, and humility.

A Throwback Get To Know Me

Let’s throw it back to the early days of blogging with a fun Q&A blog survey to get to know me.

Real Talk: The Coron-Anxiety

Getting real around here to talk about mental health and coronavirus anxiety.

The Autoimmune Protocol

The one where I talk about the AIP “diet” and ask for your advice, experience, and tips and tricks on transitioning into this lifestyle.

When Bad News Is Good News

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… Continue Reading “When Bad News Is Good News”

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.

Self Care Catalysts is one of the first to dedicate energy and time around self-care for patients, outside of patients themselves! In doing so, they are kicking off a movement called: Self Care Mvmt. The Self Care Mvmt will highlight the stories of real patients and shed more light and perspective around what it really means to live with a chronic illness, “to reveal the unseen and invisible aspects of living with a long-term illness, and to celebrate self-care.”
