I ran out of coffee this week, and I haven’t had the chance to run to the store. I’ve never run out of coffee before, and you can be assured that I am taking steps to make sure that it never happens again. Especially after I read an intriguing new study suggesting that extra sleep and coffee can be more effective for pain and migraine than medications! While I don’t know if I believe that, between that study and Chronic Coffee Chat, I have a lot of reasons to have my morning coffee.
This week at Chronic Coffee Chat, we’re talking to Valerie of Lilac and Lyme! Let’s let her introduce herself.
I am a chronic illness blogger from North Carolina, living in what is affectionately called BBQ country. As a mother of five, I have homeschooled my children for almost eighteen years. I married the love of my life over twenty six years ago. In March of 2016 I was diagnosed with chronic late stage Lyme disease after being sick for almost nineteen years. Previously I was formally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. On my blog Lilac and Lyme I share my struggles with my illnesses and coping strategies that I have learned over the years. I first began blogging in 2006 to share my Pembroke Welsh Corgi Art with the world, over time it has evolved into a health journal. You can visit with me on my blog here and also on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
