i'm here to focus on healthy food, healthy body, and living well.

i also have a chronic illness that's kicking my ass every day, and my life choices are currently limited as a result. and i hate being dependent on others but am grateful for the people who are able to and have tried to be there for me. it has meant more than i can say, and i want to become a person who has more to give back.

in recent years, i was so unwell that, almost without realizing it, i began to give up on life. i kept telling myself everything was fine, but slowly it became clear that not only was i not living or giving to those in my life, but my future was looking more and more bleak.

i've made some big changes since then, especially in diet, that have helped my energy level. i still wake up in the morning to symptoms that are huge challenges, and my body saying "i can't do this, i'll die..." but no matter how i feel physically or mentally, i can do more now than i used to be able to. i feel very lucky, because now i have the opportunity to fight every day instead of giving up. i realized that if every day is a struggle, i might as well be struggling to get stronger.
