The chronic life is hard. Invisible illnesses are a special kind of hard.
But there is help. You don’t have to travel this road alone.
Educate. Encourage. Empower.
Win over chronic. Find joy in the journey.
Auto-immune illness. Chronic illness of any kind, really… where do we even start ???
No one prepares us for just how difficult the chronic life really is. Unrelenting pain. Exhaustion. Foggy brain and memory loss. Meds that knock us down. But it’s not just the physical part of the journey that’s hard. There’s an entire practical side to this walk, like making a schedule, making sense of financial difficulties, dealing with insurance, and keeping up with our medical records. Sometimes it’s hard to just be sick for dealing with all the crazy admin stuff. It can leave us feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, discouraged and wondering if any of it will ever make sense.
Is there help out there anywhere ??
Yes, my friend, there is.
My name is Elisa Comer, and I live with invisible illnesses, namely rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s, and dysautonomia, to name a few. After 25 years in patient care and healthcare administration, my own journey of chronic illness began with an up-close-and-personal look at a path of suffering. I share my story to help others who are lost and completely overwhelmed with the administrative side of being sick.
With a lot of prayer and encouragement, some humor, grit and even some stubborn, we’ll walk this path together. There’s joy to be found along the way, if we just keep our eyes up. Welcome to my site, I’m really glad you’re here.
