My name does not matter. I am a 35 year old professional living with chronic pain while balancing the demands of being a mother and wife. My official diagnoses are Crohn’s Colitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hypertension, Migraines, Essential Tremor Disorder, Raynaud’s, Osteoporosis, Asthma…and a few other goodies. I have battled with chronic pain and illness since I was 7 years old. It is my hope that others will read my journey and laugh, cry, contribute, but more importantly dare to take on another day. I have decided that every day above ground, is a great day.
