I’m a student who has been dealing with chronic illness for almost three years now. I love superheroes, bright lipstick, and loud music.
My goal is to translate my own experiences into something that can help others. This blog is one way I hope to do that. I also work with several organizations that hope to make a real difference.
My life has changed in immeasurable ways because of chronic illness, but it is not all I am. It is not all I will be, and my future is not defined by it.
Whatever demons you are fighting today, know that you are stronger than them, and that you are not alone. And if you are, like me, an actual mutant, hey, maybe there’s a place at Xavier’s school. (A girl can dream, right?)
Kudos to you if you caught the reference.
