Thank you Jessica for this truth piece about so many things I could not say it batter myself. We owe our audience ourselves in all the forms we are. They need to hear all the gory/boring details to really understand us, and why we do what we do. We must tell all if we want to blog about ourselves in a nonfictional way in my mind.

I am told all the time I am so authentic and honest in my blogs, yet in my mind it is only because I owe it anyone who want to read my blog. I am nothing with out people’s attention and want to read my story. So, I view everything that happens as fair game for inclusion. Yes, that includes all the TMI bad and embarrassing facts make my daily life. My chronic illnesses make for a ton of content that can make my posts very a interesting commentary on how we view people with chronic and mental illnesses. I just try to do my piece in show that in my blogs. I just want to be one voice of millions that are affected and ignored sense we, the people with such a reality, make the public at large uncomfortable. I just try to shine light on that with my work. 😁❤️
