My Health Journey and the Hats I Wear - Navigating Chronic Illness with Style

Author name: Nicole

Over the past 10 years, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have given me some much-needed perspective. They've taught me that I am strong AND resilient (more so than many "healthy" people), able to contribute despite my energy limitations, and still highly capable, especially when I take care of my mind, body, and soul. Today, I am an award-winning web designer (primarily content and affiliate sites, with a digital agency that creates highly SEO'd web solutions for small businesses), working with a talented, enthusiastic online team of subject matter experts.
