Brainless Blogger

Patient Leader

I am collecting illnesses. I think soon I will have a full house and get some sort of reward or trophy. I have fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, peripheral neuropathy, vertigo, depression, asthma, hypothyroidism, and joint hypermobility syndrome. I run a blog called the Brainless Blogger (named after my fibro foggy brain). I have written a chronic pain humour book called The Chronic Pain Manual; the really, real manual to pain. I have an app called Companly which is designed for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses to connect and engage: (Information: My most powerful advocacy is in my writing but I am thinking of expanding into actual talks and videos. I do videos but not with Me in them. Just content videos. I'm introverted so... it is a struggle. Nevertheless, I write on my blog, I have written my book, I have written or reprinted articles for sites and I have written a couple of essays for a few anthologies.
