About Me

I was born with a rare medical condition called Neisidioblastosis. This caused an overproduction of insulin which resulted in seizures and comas. At six weeks of age, I had most of my pancreas removed and took an experimental drug until I was eight.  I have had Epilepsy and since then have been diagnosed with:  Psoriasis, Diabetes, Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease at the same time (Hashitoxicosis), Psoriatic Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia and Major Depression.

Although I spend a lot of time dealing with illness I still enjoy going to church, spending time with my husband and family and taking walks with my dog.  I appreciate doing any type of creative activity including dancing, writing, making paper crafts, scrapbooking, and cooking.  Being a native Floridian, I love warm weather and relaxing on the beach.

I am reaching out to those who live with multiple autoimmune disorders hoping it will help others cope and gain inspiration to live a balanced, happy life with chronic illness. Together we can do it!  Thanks for visiting!

  1. I try to live by the motto: Don’t let your illness define you. A chronic illness is a part of us, but it is not who we are. Keep pushing onward soldier for there is a purpose for everything under heaven and I feel that God chose the strong ones to cope with autoimmune disease, so that must mean you’re a fighter like me 😉
    God Bless!
