It’s been a while! I can’t remember the last time I talked about my health on the blog so I thought I would give an update on all things chronic pain, brain tumors, and disability.
What, like it’s hard?
“Oh my God, it’s so great to see you! What have you been up to since school?”

September is National Pain Awareness Month, something that I didn’t know existed, but I’m here for it. This is just a little stream of consciousness about my own struggles with pain.
June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month. Wear purple to show your support for advocacy, education, and research.
