I’m Jasmine BE. I’m an introverted wellness connector that really wants to support other spoonies in their on-going health and wellness struggle.
What is a spoonie, you ask? Well, it is an individual that lives with a chronic illness, like MS, Anxiety, Depression, Fibromyalgia, etc.
Most spoonies that I talk to are tired of trying #allthethings to help them get through each day, one manageable day at a time. Heck, even one minute at a time can be very difficult. They can feel very defeated knowing that there is no cure and emotions and energy levels cannot be depended upon from one day to the next.
Why did I decide to focus my efforts towards this group of people? I’m a spoonie too! I live with Major Depressive Disorder and Fibromyalgia, not to mention my Social Anxiety that has developed because of those illnesses/conditions.
My belief is that health comes from the effort we put in to make ourselves feel better whether that’s with prescriptions or more natural remedies. Each person is different from the next and on top of that each individual’s day can vary from one to the next as well.
I’m going to put myself forward and provide opinion and facts so that others can make their own judgements on what to try to make themselves feel better. I believe that by supporting each other we can all feel a little bit more connected to the world instead of feeling helpless and defeated curled up under the covers.
