Ship with No Sails

Patient Leader

I am living a lovely life with CRPS, Lyme Disease, and Chronic inflammatory Response Syndrome. Becoming chronically ill and subsequently disabled has changed my life and surprisingly it has had some strange silver linings. In the almost 6 years that I have been sick, I feel like I have learned a lifetime of lessons. I have felt my heart break open as I have seen what every day people struggle with because chronic illness and/or disability has flipped their world upside down. I want to help those people find a home in their body again as I search for the home inside my own. I believe speaking out, reaching out, and keeping each other afloat no matter how rough the waters may be.
