I was really sick, couldn’t find help, & started creating. I always struggled with strength and endurance. Unfortunately, my illnesses were invisible and I was told, by family and doctors, that I was just lazy and needed exercise. In 1998 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but I knew there was more to it. In 2014 I got sick, very sick. I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis. That year I spent six separate weeks in the hospital away from my family. I also had 20 day-long IV infusions, and I had to be lying down the entire time. I had two and four-year-olds and five teenagers, life was crazy! As my symptoms and diagnoses increased, I started looking online to find a way to stay positive as a mom, going through health challenges. I did find some moms who talked about what it was like, but they seemed to be doing more complaining than helping. I need someone who understood what I was going through – and who had some answers. But I didn’t find that, and after two years of searching my husband said he believed it was my job to create a place for mom’s like me. That’s when I started my first blog, Chronically Positive Mom. I had no idea what I was doing, but I was getting the information out there. I wrote a book called “The Sick Mom’s Guide to Having Fun Again” to share those positive ideas with more people. Then I started The Sick Mom’s Guide Podcast. In 2018, my doctors told me they were sorry, but there wasn’t much they could do anymore to help me. Their only goal was to “make me comfortable” as my body slowly stopped working. I accepted their words, and decided to move my family to an island paradise, so they would have a place to thrive when I was gone. To read more: https://hardymom.com/about/
