The Power of Human Connection

This post was pretty emotional for me to write, so please bare with me. From the time I was a little kid, I knew I wanted to change the world.

#LOVEISLOUDER

This entire month is Mental Health Awareness month. As I am sure many of you know, I am a huge advocate for mental health.

Can you believe it’s already been a year? Because I can’t. And let’s get specific here.

I know most people are thinking “why wouldn’tContinue reading “Happy 1 Year of Being Shitty Colon !”

Hey Ma, I Made it

So this morning I received a lovely e-mail that a panelist had selected my wee little blog to be a part of the top 100 blogs about chronic illness! Who would have thought?! I am super touched and a little bit in disbelief as I follow so many beautiful and inspiring people, so to thinkContinue reading “Hey Ma, I Made it”
