My blog is named Untangled.
I write about mental health, and living with PTSD, with a bit of poetry sprinkled in along the way. I’m honest in my writing, and come from a place of hope and optimism. I’m passionate about continuing the conversation about mental health as we work together to try and end the stigma of living with a mental illness.
Initially I began blogging because that was one of the ways to market a book. I had just written my memoir, and I heard blogging was a good avenue to reach more people. What started out as a marketing approach soon became a fabulous avenue to connect with people from all over the world. Blogging has been a truly amazing experience. I`m grateful for the people who I’ve met and have yet to meet. Come and visit my blog!
My blog is about dealing with mental health issues, trying to get a diagnoses and going through the UK benefit system. I also post about family life and pets.
I started it to give hope to other people that others were going through the same thing.
My blog is about keeping a balanced life in the midst of a chaotic world. We all experience some form of anxiety, depression, stress and panic attacks. They can be maintained and managed.
I wanted to share my stories, both positive and negative in hopes that people know they are not alone as I was. I want to be a sounding board, venting post etc to help others regain their strength.
I’m in the midst of opening an antique store to showcase my hobbies that I have done to help manage stress and anxiety.

I originally started my blog as a means to cope with having a chronic illness. After coming down with what seemed to be the flu in September of 2014, I ended up sustaining long-term effects (memory problems, verbal fluency issues, physical aches and pains) which turned my whole world upside down. Two years later I was diagnosed with tickborne disease, SIBO, and immune dysfunction. It’s been such a challenging, lonely journey and I turned to blogging in an attempt to face my health struggles head on.
When I started, I never realized how rewarding blogging would be. It’s been wonderful to connect with so many people and to receive so much support. Now that my health is improving, the focus on my blog has transformed to not just being a form of self-expression but to also help others. So many people are living with a chronic illness and I want them to know that they’re not alone. Through the lens of health, I write about what goes on in my inner world and various aspects of daily living. In that process I want to both allow others to get to know me and to raise awareness about the health struggles that many people don’t talk about. The value of your health cannot be overstated and I want more people to internalize that! My blog is one small piece in trying to spread that message.

As a family doctor, I spend a lot of time thinking and studying about health, and helping people with their health.
I know people have many questions and concerns about their health, and don’t always know where to turn for reliable answers. So I started a blog to meet that need.
I don’t claim to have the definitive answers to these questions but I offer my thoughts, insights, observations, and sometimes opinions , and those of other health care professionals.
On my blog we explore common and less common medical conditions and treatments, medical history and news, books about health and medicine, stories about real doctors and patients, and try to answer the question “What is health and how do we maintain good health?”
My goal is to inform and inspire you as we all explore

My blog is about sharing my journey with others of having several chronic illnesses. I share tips, advice, while spreading awareness and positivity. My main objective is to help others, while showing them they are not in this alone. I strive to push them to keep moving forward and never give up!
About 2 years ago, I became extremely sick. After countless amounts of tests, hospital stays, doctors appointments, and driving monthly to an out of state clinic, I was finally diagnosed. I have lupus, fibromyalgia, celiacs disease, CFS, EDS, POTS, and I also struggle with anxiety and depression. For a while, I was in a dark place, a very dark place. I got to a point where I could allow my illnesses to take over me, or I could take charge, and use them as a tool to help others. I started my blog to encourage others with my story, and show them they aren’t alone. Unfortunately, the illnesses I have, there is no cure. I strive to spread awareness in hope that there will be a cure in the future. I decided to take control of my life, and try to make a difference in this World. ♡
