About This Star Cluster

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.

  1. Hi Elanore! Thank you following my blog, which in turn led me to yours. Love your book/movie/gaming references, and I look forward to getting to know you more. 🙂 P.S. Migraines being tiny-T-rexes-driving-bulldozers-into-your-temples is BETTER than the medical definition — certainly encapsulates the condition way better!

    1. Hey there! Thank you so much for following! I think you are incredibly interesting, and your name is wonderfully clever. I look forward to getting to know you more as well through your blog. And I know, right? I truly do think it is accurate! I should get a job naming illnesses… I may not be able to cure them, but I could at least make them sound more fun 😛

  2. Awww, thank you!! You are very kind indeed! <3 Feel free to write to me on facebook if you wish, so we could interact in a more private space as well. I have the link in my blog. 🙂
