Hi, there! Nice to meet you.

🙋‍♀️ I’m Carolyn. I’m 28 and identify as she/her. You may know me as the the voice behind @chronically_cheerful, an online community for anyone seeking support, solace, and a safe space while navigating wellness challenges — especially those with a chronic illness or invisible disability.

🧠 I’ve spent the past 3-4 years as a professional patient, exploring treatments and techniques across Western and Eastern medicine in an effort to better manage, learn about and treat my chronic pain.

🔎 I know firsthand how working to feel better can be incredibly isolating and disheartening.

🌎 When we come together to share our experiences, we normalize the whole spectrum of being human and actually help each other to heal.

Stay up-to-date

You’ll get a new issue every other week filled with a compassionate perspective on feeling as well as possible when you’re struggling, plus actionable ideas on how to reduce the impact of stress, anxiety and pain.

If you enjoy, please recommend it to a friend for insights, inspiration and advice!
