Before I begin any lengthy self indulgent posts to a possible audience of none, I’d like anyone listening to know what this blog is for and who I am. I am 24, recently married and a working musician/artist. Life is pretty great! However, since I was 16 I’ve been diagnosed with 2 autoimmune diseases, several pain conditions and a number of other health conditions. I don’t need sympathy, but I think its important to share my experiences and try to reach others going through similar things. By sharing my ways of coping, my successes, down days and just my own random thoughts feelings and stories, I hope you will do the same. And maybe some of these issues will be a little bit more understood. Never feel embarrassed to talk…after all, a problem shared is a problem solved. Or at least a weight off the mind.
