Patient Leader

Founder of The Chronically Awesome Foundation, blogger, podcaster, advocate. I am an advocate for patients with bipolar and I educate the public about Bipolar and Bipolar Depression. I’ve been diagnosed with bipolar for 30+ years. In 2011 left the workforce because of the impact of my Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome. I now work full-time on the arts based non-profit I began called “Chronically Awesome.” I am proud of my #ChronicallyAwesome family. I continue to blog at WhatTheJules.com. I am a thriving fighter with Ehler’s-Danlos Syndrome, Bipolar 2, and will never tire of discussing the impact of living with both. I am a 20-year cancer survivor.

While still dealing with her own illnesses, running a household, working full-time, etc she managed to start a website, blog (now a community of bloggers), podcast, and now the Chronically Awesome Foundation which just celebrated its 1 year anniversary.

Jules produces several Twitter newspapers like the Chronically Awesome Reader and Blog Support Daily where she curates and shares the best information on Twitter about invisible illnesses, chronic illnesses, pain, and mental illness. She uses Twitter to give hope to those of us living with chronic pain.
