Hey all! Yes, It’s been quite some time, but it just seems like every time I make a grand post about starting to feel better and wanting to post more, my body laughs in my face so freaking hard and says…ummmm….no way!

The past two weeks have been medical visit after med...

To say it's been a wild year would be an understatement! My New Years Eve last year was spent recovering from jaw surgery, and that basically set the tone for the year - more hospital stays in 2018 than 2015-2017. I battled DRESS Syndrome which was caused by one of my...

I totally understand why those with Autoimmune Diseases and Chronic Illnesses have multiple writers on their websites/blogs/etc.  It’s hard to maintain when you have to shut down all unnecessary parts of your life to swing into survival mode!

This Wisconsin Spring/Summe...

When you’re chronically ill, staying alive is – quite literally – a full-time job. There’s no pay, no benefits, no vacation time, but nonetheless it is a thankless full-time job. 

When you’re a parent, keeping a child alive and thriving is – quite literally – a full-tim...

Let’s talk Omegas! As we all know, whether we want to admit it or not, our diets play a very large role in how our bodies are able to fight our autoimmune and chronic illnesses. You will never hear me talk about “good” food or “bad” food, because I do not believe in as...

Short on time? Don’t think you can fit in a lifting session in 30 minutes or less?  Although you may not be able to get as many lifts in or as heavy lifts in, I still think that, for me anyway, some lifting is better than none at all.

There are many weeks where my morni...

I was fortunate enough to be asked to share my story of how fitness has effected my life for Strong in Body, Strong in Mind for a story series they are doing.  I would love if you all took a minute to check it out over there. I've never really shared as in-depth a...

I have been sick for so long now, that I have gotten used to it – the doctors appointments, the blood draws.  My aim when it comes to peeing in a cup for labs is pretty impressive.  I can swallow 15 pills in one gulp.  I can spot a “good” pillow from across the store....
