A few years ago I started to feel like no one understood what I was dealing with in terms of chronic illness and mental health, so I went out looking for an understanding community. What I found along the way was that most of us living with chronic conditions are in need of understanding and support, so I formed The Fibro-Strong Collective (thefibrostrongcollective.com) to lend my voice to help fill this void. Connecting with other vocal creators and communities has become increasingly important to my self-care and my work.

I understand it’s tough to remember but try to remind yourself you are not a burden! I try to have alternate plans for bad days (ie museums that offer wheelchairs, etc) so I don’t feel like I can’t do anything fun on vacay and I’m not stuck in my room (too much), maybe that would be helpful?
