What is your favorite quote?

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle

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

I need help with it. I try to be positive, and I'm still trying to be fully independent from my parents.

Who inspires you and why?

Lady Gaga, she inspires and influences others and doesn't care what anybody thinks. She uses positivity through her website and Born This way Foundation to change people's lives. Also, Barack Obama- I share his ideals, he is a hard worker, and maintains his integrity.

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

Depending on the condition make sure to look at all options, medication, alternative therapies, and mental health therapies. Also, do not over-do it. This has been a main challenge in my life, since I am 25, and often want to keep up with others in my age range.


Hello, I am a 28 year girl from Sac. I teach preschoolers with Autism, and absolutely love it. I suffer from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia (as well as CFS), as well as Epilepsy.
