I am 24 and for the past 7 years I have been on a roller coaster of illness. I have had some months better than others and some involving more horrors then I would wish on my worst enemy.

I have been diagnosed with Hyperadrenergic Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Disorder, Neurocardiogenic Syncope, Acquired Brain Injury, Reoccurring AV Node Re-entrant Tachycardia and many more which affect my ability to live my day to day life.

Being chronically ill is beyond anything someone could ever imagine, and not what I had envisioned for myself. I had my entire life planned out and I now have to reformat things and adjust based on diagnosis's I receive and the reality of how far I will recover and how often I will relapse.

I have created this blog so I can be the change I wish to see out there for people with said illnesses,hopefully. There is not enough support for those suffering with "invisible illnesses" and there needs to be. This site will be my journey, my trials and errors, my triumphs and tears.I cannot promise that I will always be nice, I will probably offend someone at some point, I'm sorry. I will swear, and spill my guts, but I will always be 100% myself. Hopefully it will help someone else to find help, research, find a new method of helping themselves or simply not feel so alone.

All of my love
