Thoroughly amazed at the complexities of chronic illness and how they intertwine with life, relationships and health. Trauma can also play a significant role in chronic illness and pain.

Sometimes seeing the world from the perspective of an innocent child brings wisdom beyond our years.

Join me as I explore some emotional solutions to surviving and thriving through a chronic illness that includes past and/or present trauma. No blame or shame, no victimization, no guilt.

Here I am!!!

A bit lost at times in the human interactions of chronic illness.

On the road to health and freedom. Tickled to be on the road instead of in a gutter of hopelessness. Been there, done that.

Traveling more lightly every day.

Hanging on to my trusted and true self while I grow and learn.

Amazed at our ability to reach deep inside of ourselves to be resilient and overcome.

Amazed at who I am. It has taken a lifetime of trauma, muck-and-yuck, disease, and illness to discover who I was intended to be. Amazed at how much I like myself exactly the way I am, messy and all.
