Here are some ways I can help
If you’re a mom who wants to have fun, but hasn’t for a while…
Are you a mom who’s sick and tired of being sick & tired? I’ve written a fabulous book called, “The Sick Mom’s Guide to Having Fun Again: If I can do it, you can too!” It starts out teaching ways to ditch that consuming mom-guilt. Then it talks about ways to have fun alone, with your friends, and with the love of your life.
My favorite part of the book is the chapter that has 100 things to do with your kids. There are even 50 fun things to do with the kids when you can’t even get off the couch or out of bed! I came up with them during the time I was repeatedly hospitalized and I had 5 children at home, from 2-19 who I still needed to engage with and care for.
The end of the book talks about preparing for, and even having fun with, your visits to the doctor. If we’ve gotta go, we might as well enjoy it! Check out “The Sick Mom’s Guide to Having Fun Again” on Amazon

Does everyone seem to say the wrong thing to you?
People with invisible illness often struggle with those around them offering to fix their problems, if they admit the person has an illness at all. People with a more visible illness or disability are often ignored, or told all kinds of crazy and rude things about how to “fix” themselves.
