Welcome, and thanks for joining! My name is Emily. I’m a 30 something year old wife and mother of an angel baby. I’ve lived with multiple chronic illnesses since I was 4, yes FOUR, years old. It wasn’t until a recent series of unfortunate, life changing events that led me to the conclusion of “you don’t have to live like this.” What are these events that provoked this great awakening, you ask? We don’t have time to go in depth today, but you’ll learn as we go. I can’t give you all the answers right away, that wouldn’t be fair! I do hate cliffhangers and “part 2s” so long story short I am a NICU mama, Sjogren’s warrior, pulmonary embolism x 3 survivor, and pulmonary arterial hypertension fighter. How many more rare occurrences can be listed in one sentence? Stay tuned for the full story. 

I am here writing for YOU. So you can learn from my mistakes, and find relief knowing you are not alone. If you suffer from a chronic illness, I hope you are smarter than me and learned quickly that not everyone feels like this, and what you feel is not normal. Finding people to believe you is sometimes the hard part, but what is even harder is being gentle on yourself. You go through something every single day that no one else has to even think about. You second guess a lot of decisions and plans based on your med schedule, or your fatigue level. I HEAR you. I am HERE for you. I AM you. 

Join along as I share with you ways that I cope and manage my illnesses through cooking, writing, and healing from within. I may not have all the answers, but I’m here to let you know you are not alone. If I can do it, so can you.

Love always,
