How disease shaped my life for the better

I drifted through childhood tight-chested, detached, and anxious, unable to breathe fully.

My limbs were twigs but I had B-cup man boobs and a pot belly.Continue reading “How disease shaped my life for the better”


I was diagonsed with sleep apnea as an underweight twenty one year old.

Sutra Neti blocked in your nose? Advice I wish I knew before I started

For the longest time, I just couldn’t get the sutra neti through my nostrils. It was just blocked, like there was a wall in my sinuses. And I would painfully pick and prod with my sutra to no avail. Maybe I have a deviated septum. Or maybe my mucus is so hardened it needs toContinue reading “Sutra Neti blocked in your nose? Advice I wish I knew before I started”
