I have made my life easier - a lot of people ask about my health and it’s easy having one central place. Plus, since I know people all over the world, this is easily shareable.

I apologize for typos or any words that don’t make sense. Words are incredibly difficult for me lately.

I am chronically ill, it would take to long to list everything but my primary illness is neurofibromatosis type 1. Since August, I have been acutely ill and Things took a turn for the worse in November with 3 ER trips, one inpatient stay, and multiple outpatient trips.

I don’t know if the problems are unique or connected, but currently in addition to my baseline:

1) chronic cough and chest pain, difficulty breathing

2) current extreme exhaustion

3) extreme vision difficulty

4) back acting up again

5) ongoing abdominal pain.

Currently, my friends and my faith are what’s holding me and keeping me going. I don’t know what my future holds, but I take solace in who holds tomorrow.
