Download your free 12-page guide to discover 5 clean eating hacks for autoimmune disease (and other chronic conditions) that you can review and start implementing today!

Did you know that a health-work-home-life balance is possible, even with autoimmune disease?

You wake up tired, in pain, and battle many different symptoms throughout your day. You go to bed exhausted, hoping that tomorrow will somehow be better. No matter how hard you try, your days always end up feeling like unproductive chaos.

Maybe you forgot to turn in your kid’s permission slip or respond to their teacher’s email. Maybe you missed another doctor’s appointment because you thought it was tomorrow, not today. Maybe you even forgot to take your medications or supplements this morning.

And unfortunately, this spiral just continues…from one day to the next, one week to the next, and before you know it, it’s been YEARS since you’ve felt in control of your health and your life.

Let me guess…sounds familiar, right?!?

Trying to find a good health-work-home-life balance isn’t easy, especially when you have an autoimmune disease (and/or other chronic condition) that constantly takes away most of your focus, energy, and time. I know how hard it can be to not only manage a job, support a family, and set goals but also how hard it can be to try and manage your health symptoms all while trying to keep your life somewhat together. I also know how isolating all of this can feel, even when you’re in a room full of people.

I know because I’ve lived it and I’ve been there.

Even after years of trying to stay organized and find routines that work, I still can have some very unpleasant days.

However, that doesn’t mean that we have to continue living in those unpleasant and lonely moments. We can choose to keep striving for better health, better routines, and better life management than we have right now. We can choose to focus on the things that we CAN DO, instead of the ones that we can’t. And we can seek out the resources and support we need to go from frazzled and chaotic to organized and calm.

And with this space, that’s what I’ve set out to do. My goal is to use the strategies that I’ve learned to help autoimmune warriors (like you!) ditch the overwhelm and find an amazing healthwork-home-life balance that works for them. My passion involves sharing the tools, research-backed resources, accountability, support, life coaching and inspiration you might need to help empower you to take control of your symptoms and live your best life, even with disease.

about me

Hi! I'm Tina!

An autoimmune disease and chronic illness patient, researcher, warrior, writer, and advocate for people living with autoimmune disease and other chronic health conditions. I am a middle school teacher, teacher leader, and college adjunct instructor by day and an autoimmune advocate, writer, and published author by night.

Outside of my health journey, I also have a wonderful husband and young son as well as three golden retrievers who think they’re human most days.

Through my own experiences, I have personally earned the title to over 28 official medical diagnoses, at least 6 of which are autoimmune in nature, and have experienced over 16 medically related surgeries in the past 20 years. I am one of those people who understand some of what you may be going through because I’ve been there; I am an autoimmune and chronic illness warrior just like you.

I, too, have experienced complex health symptoms. I, too, have left doctors’ offices with more questions than answers. And I, too, have felt very alone in my struggles at times. However, we do not have to feel that way. Through these experiences, I have now made it my mission to help others on a similar journey. I’m hoping to eventually share patient stories, create a unique section of resources, and to help others feel more connected through a warrior-filled community all our own!

Welcome to One Autoimmune Journey. I am so glad you’re here!
