What autoimmune diseases do you have? What are your chronic illnesses?

I deal with a variety of illnesses in my everyday life including Behcet’s Disease (and allllll its many MANY symptoms/side effects), Rheumatoid Arthritis, Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, chronic migraines, Anisocoria, severe depression & anxiety, and chronic chest pain.

I am currently undergoing further testing for Elher’s Danlos Syndrome, nervous system problems, POTS and/or cardiac related problems, gastrointestinal abnormalities, various mental illness related issues, and causes of various chronic pain listed above.

What is an invisible illness?

An invisible illness is any form of illness that is not easily visible to others. Invisible illnesses can be both physical and mental.

Many people assume that someone is healthy if they look healthy. However, more times than not, this is not the case. 90% of my illnesses are invisible. Meaning, you cannot see them, but I am suffering and in pain from them 24/7. Please remember - not everyone that is disabled looks disabled. Show kindness and grace to everyone, as you never know the battles they are fighting.

Do you do product reviews? Can I send you product to use in your projects?

I do accept products for consideration of use and review. Please note: sending product does not guarantee I will use/feature it on my blog or other social channels. Items received are for consideration only. I only share products I truly love and would personally use.

Products can be sent to: PO BOX 2564 Pasadena, CA 91102

What is your policy for brand collaborations?

I am always looking to collaborate with brands that fit my lifestyle and readers’ interests! If you think your brand would be a good fit, please fill out the form on my contact page for more information on my rates and collaboration opportunities!

Do you use essential oils?

I sure do! And I absolutely love them! While for me personally, they cannot replace western medicine, I am always looking for natural and homeopathic remedies to help me relax, soothe an upset stomach, etc. For me, essential oils bring me joy and happiness, so I love using them!

Do you follow a special diet?

I have tried every autoimmune/chronic illness specific diet in the history of ever. You name it (AIP, FODMAP, etc.), I’ve most likely tried it. I’ve been lactose intolerant & allergic to eggs my entire life, and developed a gluten allergy (not Celiac) in 2014.

Currently, the diet that is working the best for me is a dairy & gluten free diet, with mostly raw/unprocessed foods. I make as much of my food from scratch as I can, and eat very little meat (I’m just not a fan of meat.) I don’t eat fish (blegh, I don’t like it), and try to avoid corn & soy when possible. Lastly, I take a variety of supplements, adaptogens, and vitamins that provide my body with what it specifically needs.

A healthy diet that works for you, your body, and your illnesses is SO important. But, it’s also something that is specific to each individual person. What works for me, may not work for you, and vice versa. I recommend speaking with your doctor and a nutritionist to develop an eating plan that will work for you.
