Newly diagnosed and feeling overwhelmed ?

Kicked around by all the insurance and admin stuff  ?

Are you a family member or caretaker and need some support and encouragement ? 



Then you’ve come to the right place, friend.

For the newly diagnosed

If you’re new to a journey of Sjogren’s and chronic illness, there is help. The uphill climb will render you weary and exhausted an will test your patience in ways you never dreamed of. It’s hard to rest when there are deadlines, schedules to maintain and coordinate, and other things to line up before your first visit. You can find some helpful resources to get you started here

Already Diagnosed 

If you’ve been traveling this road for a while, you know this journey is uphill and it.is.hard. From practical tips for the daily grind to encouragement  for the tough times, I write and teach from the experiences of living with chronic illness and decades in nursing/healthcare administration. I understand the pain. The complexity of the walk. Feeling kicked around by things we can’t control. You can do this. There are lots of resources here

The Admin Side of Sick

If you’re feeling kicked around, stuck, or just overwhelmed with paperwork and the “business-y” side of being sick, here  are great resources for busting out of stuck. From scheduling appointments, to learning when to give in when our bodies need us to, to working or owning a small business – the stuck places are numerous. Moving forward takes energy and grit when there often seems to be none. I’ve been there. I get it. And I can help you move past “stuck.”
