Chronic Illness, Limitations, Accepting Help

recent short video of mine on chronic illnesses, limitations, and accepting help

I’m back. Lately, I’ve been MIA due to a crisis. A family member had an accident; the past six weeks have been quite difficult on everyone. However, we are thankful for those who have shown up like my cousin AJ who coordinated help via Meal Train and friends who sent delivery to our house or gave us StubHub gift cards. I recommend both Meal Train and Grubhub; I have never used either of them before this experience. We are truly grateful for those who have stepped up!


Hi there! I am a patient advocate, writer, and public speaker most well known for my TEDx Talk, “How to Get Stuff Done When You Are Depressed.” As someone who is juggling 5 illnesses: bipolar 2, myasthenia gravis, endometriosis, psoriasis, and asthma, I’m passionate about helping people who navigate life with both chronic physical & emotional pain.
