Being chronically ill isn’t cute. Well, it’s not easy to stay cute through the constant pain and the way the meds change your physical appearance. But once I understood some years ago that I would have this for the rest of my life, I had to think of a way to cope, fast. Having Takayasu’s Disease has propelled me on a whole ‘nother level of enlightenment and peace with myself, the world, and relationships with those in my life.
Recently I spoke with Sloane Ivy about what it’s really like being a “pretty sick chick”. Watch my interview and thumbs up if you want to show love!
Any questions about my disease or lifestyle? Don’t hesitate to ask–if you’ve been following my journey for a while now, you know I’m pretty open to letting y’all in (as long as it’s coming from a kind and genuine place).
