Before I was a blogger I was a SAHM for 17 years. I tried a few times to keep up a personal blog, but each time I got too busy being a mom to write about it.
Four years ago (2013) I started showing symptoms of the chronic illnesses I would eventually be diagnosed with in 2014. (Technically I had shown signs of fibro since I was 18, but it had never impacted me like it soon would.)
I am being treated for inflammatory arthritis, fibromyalgia and dysautonomia. On top of that, I have depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety.
I live a totally different life now than I did before my diagnoses. This change left me in an identity crises of sorts. I spent a lot of time learning about self-acceptance, self-worth, self-love, etc and then I had this break through.
I decided I wanted to do what I could to help others to not feel the way I had. If you:
- feel worthless
- don’t like yourself
- are looking for some purpose
- feel you are wasting your life
- struggle with depression and/or anxiety
- or struggle with your self-esteem due to chronic illnesses
then this blog is for you. ♥
I will be including posts discussing spoonie issues (What is a Spoonie?) but this blog is for anyone wanting to work on loving themselves. You will find resources on self-acceptance, self-love, self-care, and even some cooking and cleaning tips to help you save your energy for other things.
I’m hoping to create a supportive community of people who learn how to love themselves, and how to live the one life we get in the fullest possible way. To do that I’ve started a Facebook group you are welcome to join. You can also follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Please look around, check out some of my freebies, subscribe so you don’t miss out on anything, and feel free to contact me anytime.
