Introducing Me

Hi, I'm Kayla and I'm chronically ill.

Your line is: "Hiiii Kayla."

Alright now that we've gotten the monotonous Alcoholics Anonymous-style greeting out of the way let me tell you what the hell I'm doing.  I'm starting a blog (my self-righteous self is now going to pause for applause)..........

Alright here's the deal, I have a very specific goal for this blog and I'm going to use this first post to set the scene and tell you what you can expect from me.  I want to make this blog as accessible as possible.  Basically, I want people with chronic illness to actually be able to read the shit that I write.  To me, that means I need to keep everything short, sweet, and to the damn point because I know all too well that brain-fog gets the best of us and it's hard to read long paragraphs/essays/novels/you name it.

Focusing is really hard with chronic illness, so I'm going to make this blog easy to read.  I will split the more complicated subject material (for example my illness journey) into multiple posts, and when I post recipes I'll be putting the recipe at the beginning of the post instead of the end because no one likes looking up a recipe and having to scroll through Brenda's longwinded story about how her nephew Nathaniel just "can't get enough" of her chocolate chip cookies. I am not Brenda, I will not do that to you people.

That's all I want to say for now so welcome to all you humans who want to read my shit, I'll try to make this as painless as possible since we all have more than enough pain to deal with as it is.
