After my son was born, I didn't know any other parents suffering from a chronic illness. I couldn't find much supportive information for moms with pain, either. Being a new mom is hard enough, but living with daily pain magnifies all the normal challenges of parenting. I started my blog Mothering With Chronic Pain with the goal of not only sharing my own story, but also of raising awareness of chronic illness and chronic pain among parents. I've found writing to be a great healing tool, and I hope to help other moms share their struggles, too. My work has recently been featured on The Mighty, The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, and BlogHer.
