I am a massive cluster of stardust, just like everyone else. Unfortunately, many of my own stars are sick, and therefore I am not the average lump- I’m even lumpier, and chronically ill.
I created this blog in order to help those like me who suffer from illness feel more heard and less alone, to help those unlike me reach a greater understanding of what it is like to have this different sort of life, and above all, to create something beautiful out of the struggle I’ve endured.
Some of my blogs are serious while others are quite silly, and most are a bit of both. Despite the difficulties I’ve endured, I always make a point to hold on to my humor. I write about some of the darkest parts of life because I believe that these are the topics that should be discussed the most, when usually they are swept under the carpet. I refuse to believe pain and humor are exclusive; on the contrary, they usually go hand in hand. I’ve learned that this doesn’t always make survival easier, but it sure does help.
I have always been a storyteller. For most of my life, I wanted to tell a story, but never could think of a great one. Ultimately, I was hit with the realization that the story I’m meant to tell is precisely the one I’ve been living.
I hope you enjoy it, and take goodness from it.
