Hi, my name is Kathy Forsyth! I’ve been dealing with disability from chronic illnesses for more than 10 years. I pushed myself hard for too many years, and my health suffered as a result. Of course, going through an ugly divorce, and raising 6 kids on my own while working full-time probably didn’t help. I have asthma, chronic bronchitis, arthritis, GERD, osteoporosis, sleep apnea, fibromyalgia, CVID which is an immune deficiency, and anxiety/depression. I started this blog to give some purpose to my days.
My dream is to inspire, and encourage others with chronic health issues to dream new dreams, and be bold enough to pursue them. I haven’t mastered this life with chronic illness, but I would love to have you with me on the journey. My faith in Jesus colors my world, but I want you to know that no matter your faith perspective, you are welcome here.
I’m a single mom of six children ages 33 to 21. I had to quit my job as a registered nurse due to severe asthma, and frequent respiratory infections. I love to get out in nature, reading, writing, and crafting.
I would love to get to know you, and create a supportive community here! Please feel free to contact me with any topics you want to learn more about or with your observations about life with illness. Subscribing to my blog will give you access to my Subscriber’s-only Resource Library. I would love to have you join me on this journey! Kathy
