P.S.  One more thing, THANK YOU, to everyone who nominated me and/or voted for me in the 5th Annual WEGO Health Activist Awards!  Yesterday, I found that I am a Finalist for Health Activist Hero.  This is the third consecutive year that I have been a Finalist.  Regardless of the outcome, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to recognize my work!


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.
