    A New Venture

    A New Venture

    Hey, I'm back! Well, sort of. I started a new website and podcast called The Chronically ill Christian. We talk about turning to, and questioning, our faith in times of struggle with chronic disease and disability. Will try to find God in all the messy places of our lives and deal with the hard questions, while still trying to find hope and peace and healing. Come join us over at www.thechronicallyillchristian.com and listen wherever you get your podcasts.

    Happy Halloween Part 2

    Happy Halloween Part 2

    Halloween can be triggering for those of us with mental illness. Unresolved trauma can surface during this time. Not everyone celebrates or they may celebrate in a way that excludes gore, spookiness and fright. If that's you, I understand.

    Happy Halloween Part 1

    Happy Halloween Part 1

    Let's talk about the scary aspect of cohabitating with others who also have a chronic illness. Does it work for you? Or does it leave you running from your home like it's haunted? Also, how do we return to "normal" after this pandemic when our version of normal never was normal?

    Fall Check-in

    Fall Check-in

    Just checking in. Fall is upon us and that can mean cooler temps, which is great for heat intolerance, but we also welcome fall allergens -- which is not so cool. Daylight savings time and darker days can be a bummer for SAD, depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. Also, do you live with someone who also has a chronic illness? Do you find it helpful or does it make everything worse? I want to talk to you about it on an upcoming podcast, so get in touch!
