My name is Jordyn and I started this blog to connect with others about living with chronic illness. I began my chronic illness journey when I was 14 years old and have been on quite a ride ever since. A few things about me that you should know is that I’m obsessed with the color turquoise, am an absolute bookworm (I smell the pages as well), and love dogs. I’m honestly kind of surprised that I have made a blog, as I am an extremely shy person in real life and find it hard to talk to people that I do not know.
I have a service dog named Minnie. She is a miniature pinscher mix who weighs around 29 pounds. We rescued her from a nearby shelter and I trained her myself to become a service dog. I have found it helpful to be able to take her with me to out of town doctor appointments and to the hotels at night. She likes to lay on my lap everyday and provides a calming pressure therapy for me. I couldn’t imagine my life without my Minnie.
The purpose of this blog is to be able to connect with others who are in a similar boat as you are. Joining the chronic illness community has been life changing for me and I want to provide this same experience for others. With the strength of God, I have been able to get through each day, no matter how low or how much pain I am in. My commitment is to show others a different perspective on life with chronic illnesses and mental health conditions. I am here to help inspire, chat, love, learn, and grow with the beautiful people in the chronic illness community.
