Hello! Thank you so much for coming to my site!
I created this with the hope to encourage others with chronic illnesses to unapologetically delve into self-care and self-love.
I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when I was 10-years-old. After that, I spent years at different hospitals and going through an array of tests to try and pinpoint the cause of my symptoms. After a misdiagnosis (or several) I went untreated for around 12 years. In 2015, I was hospitalized for a flare that would re-diagnose me with Crohn’s Disease and change my life.
I’ve had to learn how to truly listen to my body and advocate for it. Along with Crohn’s Disease, I’ve suffered from severe migraines, arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis and chronic pain for as long as I can remember. Living with pain and “invisible illnesses” is indescribably difficult but there are things we can do to make it easier.
So please, jump in, discuss, read, vent and share your experiences!
