I am an #InvisibleIllnessWarrior; I fight a number of debilitating, chronic conditions, which combined cause me never-ending severe pain and severe fatigue. I am 95% homebound, leaving my house only to go to doctor appointments. I spend about 65% of my time (or maybe more) bedbound. I am also a wife, a friend, and a servant to my pet overlords (one dog, two cats, one turtle). Before I got sick, I was very accomplished and busy – an artist, photographer, writer, editor, bibliophile, marketer, college instructor, and volunteer. But my illnesses stole it all from me. There is much I can no longer do, but I am not going to stop doing what I can, which is advocate for both myself and others with mental and physical illnesses. I'm also going to be kind.
