Hey! Are you a Super Woman? Me neither!



My two kids and I live with chronic pain from hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Here is where I share all of our wacky adventures with a dash of wisdom and a shot of vodka.

You can check out some of my previous ramblings below.

Welcome! I’m glad you are here.
