Hello and welcome!
I’ve wanted to start this blog for a while now. At first, I didn’t feel comfortable being so open. Naturally, I am a very private person and the thought of sharing my truths for others to comment on makes me uneasy….still does BUT shortly after being diagnosed I quickly realized that people are ignorant
Ignorance is not knowing what you don’t know so I figured, “Why not educate people instead Ash”. The average person who didn’t major in science or some health-related field won’t know about this stuff. Unless they’ve had a chronically ill family member or friend; this isn’t something that crosses the average person’s mind. I am dealing with much more than most people are able to even comprehend and that’s okay.
I promise throughout this journey to remain:
I’m not looking for anyone’s sympathy, “Hope you feel better”, or any of that. I’m here to give people an insight… rather a glimpse into how it is living with an autoimmune disease. The good/bad/ugly.
I’m here for the countless of other Spoonies that are probably lying in bed searching for answers or someone who gets it. I’m here for the newly diagnosed, the single
I hope that this blog helps YOU because I’m finding this cathartic already.
