Hi! Been a while, friend. You haven’t seen me on the blog or YouTube because I’ve been a bit busy writing my book (!!!) which is now complete and will publish on September 1. I’ll be posting more information about that soon!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a bit of the medical stuff I’ve been going through this summer in an effort to share with anyone who has been going through anything similar. I know there are many of you who have systems that don’t seem to cooperate, who are in a lot of pain, who are constantly exhausted, who seem to be sensitive to absolutely everything – heat, food, noise, whatever else.

Instead, I have Continue reading “This is me not writing my book.”

Have no idea what I’m talking about when I say ‘spoonie’?

As I develop content for my book, publishing in September 2016, you’re going to keep hearing me refer to this thing called a “spoonie.” Nope, not a trekkie. Not some weird reference to cuddling. It’s a way people with chronic disease describe ourselves, and here’s why. Continue reading “Have no idea what I’m talking about when I say ‘spoonie’?”
