- I would venture to say that I have the classic redhead personality, as I am full of fire & passion. My astrological sign is Libra, and without question, I fit the various characteristics, both positive & negative, to a T. The Libra is typically someone who loves beauty, seeks harmony & love, thirsts for knowledge & justice, is enticed by psychology, cares deeply for others (humans & animals alike), is both intuitive & highly sensitive, prefers the finer things in life, and, is thee best procrastinator you will ever meet! I, without a shadow of a doubt, own all of these character traits, many of which are reflected throughout my life. While I have a BA in psychology, along with some experience in the worlds of counseling, law, & various healing modalities, I am presently focusing my energies on two main topics: writing & art. My interest for all things related to health & illness arises from my own struggles with chronic health conditions. I have found it most therapeutic & empowering to write about my many experiences within this realm. Through education, my own research, and personal experiences, I am teaching myself how to become my own best advocate.Reaching, and hopefully, helping others, is one of the main reasons I created this blog page. I want desperately to help those whom are facing similar challenges. Support, education/information, understanding, and compassion are all key to surviving and functioning with any given chronic health condition.I have learned a lot as a result of my long journey - nearly 20 years - with Spondylolisthesis (as well as my time spent dealing with the auto immune diseases Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, FibroMyalgia, Hashimoto's & PCOS *note that FM is not considered an auto immune disease and PCOS is more relevant to endocrinology & reproductive medicine, although there appears to be some connection between the two worlds). My main wish and intention is to pass along all of the knowledge I've acquired to anyone interested and willing to listen.I encourage any readers who are dealing with this spine condition, or a chronic illness of any kind, to please feel free to ask questions and share your stories. That's why I'm here!If you'd like to learn more about me, or if you have any questions and/or comments regarding my history and related subject matter found on either blog page, please contact me through my Blogger profile, scroll down & message me in the provided contact form, or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.Blessings of health, energy & peace!
