About me

Living with MCAS is a truly an isolating experience, not only because it’s debilitating, but it is extremely difficult to understand. The rules of the disease are dynamic and unique to each individual. It is hard to educate others when you are learning yourself. My goal is to inspire hope, empathy, and humor by sharing my experiences through this blog.


I take an assortment of daily mast cell medications to be able to function!

I was diagnosed with MCAS in December 2015 after five abnormal mast cell test results and a lifetime of symptoms. I rely on medication to block or reduce the ridiculous amounts of chemical mediators released by my mast cells.
