Join us Now! My 10th Annual Virtual New Year’s Eve Party!

Hey! What are you doing New Year’s? Going on now! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years – you can join us at:

All you need is Facebook. The party started earlier today (Dec 30) and the marathon/party ends on 6 am EST on January 2nd (though people pop in and out–no one stays all 64 hours). For those who don’t know, I started this party in 2013 so no one would have to be alone on New Year’s Eve, including people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. There are a multitude of reasons disabled people may spend the holiday alone including chronic pain, fatigue, being immunocompromised, depression, and more. People from all over the world come every year (for different reasons) to ring in New Year’s together during SyFy’s iconic multi-day marathon. Happy New Year’s everyone! Hoping 2024 brings less pain and less ableism for my community.


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.
