About me

I’m on a mission to share my story. I hope by doing so I can make someone feel less alone in their journey. I also wish that by sharing my story I inspire others to start a dialogue about their own.

As someone who has lived with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) for five years. I write for other chronic illness warriors so they know they aren’t alone.

I’ve been living life with PNES for five years, two years undiagnosed. It’s taken me a long time to come to a point where I’m comfortable sharing my story and all that entails. I was once victim to the thought that having a mental illness was something not to be discussed. It was something to be embarrassed about and was to stay hidden. I’ve come to realize this point of view was not only hurting me, but the people in my life. I believe taking a stand and opening a dialogue about these issues will not only benefit me, but will help others change their feelings about mental illness. In the spirit of opening a dialogue, please feel free to ask whatever questions you may have. If you happen to step over the line, I simply won’t answer. It helps me when people ask questions. Things that seem obvious to me may not be to you. Ask away!

As we all progress on this journey together you’ll catch on to a few things. I tend to use sarcasm a lot. I frequently use humor to down play the harder parts of this illness. This is my coping skill, feel free to giggle or at least give me a courtesy snicker.  At this point I haven’t hammered out all the details as far as how often I’ll post. Occasionally I get rather overwhelmed with things so we will see where this goes. I want to thank you for reading this far, hopefully we are all going to have some fun!
