• Chronic Illness

    When you feel like a burden, but you don’t want people to know.

    Are You A Burden; Okay, so I know the title isn’t really all that it is cracked up to be. I had a little trouble finding the best title I could for this. I think when it comes to having any kind of illness, or getting sick you can feel like a burden at any given moment. As for me, I feel like one 24/7. I am not sure if any of you can relate and if you can, I am so sorry for what you may be going through, but know you are not alone. We are never alone in this journey even though it can be the most…

    Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE)

    Life with Eosinophilic Esophagitis All my life I have had trouble swallowing my food, not being able to eat certain types of food, and overall just getting sick with food.  I have never had a good relationship with food basically to tell you straight. When I was 12, I was diagnosed with gastroparesis, then in my 20’s I was later diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
