Pattie Brynn

Health Activist

Even SuperHeroes chug mocha-vodka-valium lattes, right? RIGHT? This mom of 5 "gets" the challenges of raising a family, working and trying to manage an autoimmune disease that affects not just myself, but my entire household. I advocate for resources, for information, for knowledge, but more importantly (in my opinion) the realistic journey of life with chronic illness. I strive to promote "healing through art" and my ever-evolving "#gladitude" project: I verily believe that managing a disease requires WHOLE body care, and that includes your mind and your spirit. I write it like it is, because I live it like it is. The key component of my advocacy is just that: I choose to *live*...come along for the ride, but keep your arms and legs inside the blog posts at all times!! ;)

Fun, funny and always VERY REAL, Pattie keeps us entertained while educating us on lupus, diabetes and more. From her Gladitude Project, which is inspiring and reminds us to appreciate the happy moments & little victories in life, to her ponderings while cleaning cat s**t from the garage, she is hilarious & endearing. Thank you Pattie! *jazz hands*  — Maranda
