Blog Address:

What is your blog about? Health, happiness, hair, honesty!

What inspired you to start your blog? In 2011 I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune illness which affected my life drastically, in an instant. This is my way of sharing with others ways to cope with the physical and psychological challenges of a rare disease while living as normal of a life as possible.

When did you start your blog? 2013

How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running? The hunger for interaction, information, and wanting to spread awareness and advice.

What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging? Sometimes people don’t receive my opinions as well as I think they will but… that’s a part of life! For the most part I get great feedback from people who understand and share my logic.

In the future where do you hope your blog will take you?
My end goal is to spread as much awareness about vasculitis (autoimmune diseases) and bring that conversation the forefront of mainstream media one day, soon.

Have you met anyone interesting/famous on your blogging journey? A few people, but to me, they are more like peers that I share something in common with—determination and passion.

If you could do only ‘one thing’ today then what would it be?
Thrive with a smile on my face!
