    1. Chronic Illness, Health, On Life

      I Am Enough.

      Content Warning: body image issues, eating disorders, internalized ableism. I am enough. That’s a sentence I’m trying so hard to embrace and to believe. I’ve felt glimpses of it in the past. I’ve had good weeks and sometimes even months where I could say those words and they felt like truth. But something happened along […] Read more…

      A difficult life is not less.

      The bed in that photo is mine. It’s where I spend most of my time. It’s where I’ve spent most of my time for the last 6 years or so. Well, we’ve gotten a new bed since then, but I just swapped one memory foam surface for another and rried on like before. I lay […] Read more…

      Questioning my future as an advote

      I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting this month. I’ve been noticing how much lmer my mind is when I just ocsionally check social media and feel no obligation to constantly refresh apps like instagram and facebook. Which has got me thinking a lot about the advocy volunteer work that I do. Being an advote […] Read more…

      The Path Where It Was Taking Me

      Lately, I have been thinking a lot about loss. I have been feeling a loss that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Being chronilly ill and becoming disabled has brought about some losses I never expected to feel, or to feel this hard. And there always seems to be another one around the corner. I try to live in the moment, be positive and grateful (all of those characteristics everyone wants to see in a sick person), but some days I’m hit head on with that very real feeling of “what if this never happened to me?” Dreadful, I know. Read more…

      This is Hard, But I’m Okay.

      You know what? This is all really hard sometimes. I joke around a lot. I look for humour in every situation I find myself in. I smile and laugh and reassure everyone that I’m fine. And in general, I am. I am very proud of how I handle what comes my way. But sometimes I […] Read more…

It’s #DifferentAidsforDifferentDays and it was created to help explain and celebrate the nuance of disability. The point of the hashtag is to normalize the idea that a lot of disabled people use a variety of different mobility aids […] Read more…
