What is your favorite quote?

It is what it is.

What is your philosophy on life and living with chronic disease?

I can eitherspend all my time in bed or I can work on things 15 minutes at a time and not let my chronic diseases beat me down.

Who inspires you and why?

My children because they need me. My ex-boyfriend of sorts because he puts his family first and adopted his grandson and is raising him.

What would your advice be to someone just beginning on a chronic disease journey?

Rest when your body says so. Do what your doctor says but also if you are in pain ask for a referral to a pain specialist.


I am a sort-of single mom with 3 teenagers. I have Fibromyalgia, Just had a double mastectomy in January and am having issues healing from it right now. I am also diabetic. I have other chronic conditions but I won't bore you with those right now.
