About

My name is Sof! I’m almost 20 years old, I am an arts student, a cat-lover,Β a skin care aficionado, a music lover–and oh yeah! I am chronically ill. I have severe Crohn’s Disease and inflammatory arthritis.

My goal here is to create a site that adequately showcases my passions, struggles, & interests–with the occasional written piece about being chronically ill. When I was first diagnosed, I struggled to find anyone on the internet that was chronically ill–but talked about other parts of themselves; showcased their personalities & their complete humanity. That’s my goal here! I want to be the girl I wish I’d found on the internet when I was first diagnosed. I want to be here for chronically ill girls & young women, while also showing you that I am a complex human being who is a lot more than her illness!

This blog isn’t just for chronically ill people–by no means! I want to show everyone my interests and share some of my personal struggles. But I want to give a special shout-out to the chronically ill girls who come across this blog. I love each & every one of you. You are so much more than your illness! I want to show you that it is possible to be passionate about a lot of things while being chronically ill. If I can do it, you most certainly can.

And for all of the people on this site who aren’t chronically ill: I hope you enjoy my writing, my skin care reviews, my photographs, and all the other content I will have on here! Like I said: I am a human being. I don’t just talk about my chronic illness because that’s boring! I am relatable to not only chronically ill people but to healthy people, because my illness isn’t the only thing that ties me to someone.

So much love to all of you!

Sof
