Hey there, radiant souls! 🌈 I’m Kelly, and I’m thrilled you’ve landed on my cozy corner of the internet, 50 Shades of Healing. 🌿

The Origin Story: Why 50 Shades of Healing? 🌊

In 2019, my life took a turn that no screenplay could ever capture. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and it was like pulling the first card in a house of cards—everything came tumbling down. I found myself juggling not just one but multiple autoimmune conditions. Imagine a snowball rolling down a hill, gathering more snow and turning into a full-blown avalanche—that was my life! 🌨️

Why should you trust me? Well, I’ve been navigating this complex world of autoimmune diseases and chronic illnesses for years now. I’ve consulted with medical professionals, read countless research papers, and most importantly, lived the experience. So, when I share something, know that it comes from a place of both knowledge and empathy. 📚💕

But Wait, The Plot Thickens! 🎭

As if the universe wanted to add a subplot, I was also diagnosed with chronic migraines, liver disease (NASH), and a few other unexpected guests. It felt like my body was collecting diagnoses like they were limited edition Pokémon cards—except, not fun at all. 😅

Why You’re Gonna Want to Stick Around 🌟

I’ve been on this whirlwind journey of health, wellness, and self-discovery for a hot minute, and I’ve unearthed some real gems along the way. From self-care rituals that feel like a warm embrace to mental health strategies that are absolute game-changers, I’ve got the 411 for you. 🌈

What makes me an authority on this? I’ve not only been a patient but also an avid researcher. I’ve attended seminars, spoken to experts in the field, and tried and tested various approaches to managing these conditions. So, you’re not just getting advice; you’re getting well-researched, tried-and-true tips. 🌟

You’re Not Alone, Promise! 🤗

Navigating the labyrinth of chronic illnesses and mental health can feel isolating like you’re stuck in an endless maze. But here’s the tea: you’re not alone! I’m here to be your flashlight, your GPS, and your biggest cheerleader. Let’s conquer this maze together, one step at a time. 🌻

A Bit More About Yours Truly 🌼

I’ve been a blogger since the good ol’ days of 2011. My first blog was a heartfelt space where I shared the highs and lows of life with my Autistic son. That blog has since evolved into a treasure chest filled with not just Autism-focused content but also mouth-watering recipes, travel escapades, and wellness hacks. Cruise on over to “Kelly’s Thoughts On Things” for a hearty dose of life’s many flavors. 🌍

Why listen to me about Autism and parenting? I’m not just a mom; I’m a mom who has done her homework. I’ve read up on Autism, consulted with experts, and most importantly, lived the day-to-day joys and challenges. So, the advice you get here is both expert and mom-approved! 👩‍👦‍👦

For the Foodies: A Treat Awaits! 🍲

If you’re a culinary adventurer like me, you’re in for a treat! I also run “Sweet and Savory Morsels,” a blog where I share recipes that are so good, they’ll make your taste buds do a happy dance. 🍴

What’s On the Horizon? 🌅

I’ve got a smorgasbord of exciting content coming your way. Think in-depth articles on autoimmune diseases, interviews with medical experts, and maybe even some cooking tutorials (because food is life, am I right?). So, smash that follow button, and let’s make this journey of healing and self-discovery unforgettable! 🌈

Wrapping It Up 🎁

Life’s going to throw curveballs; it’s inevitable. But it’s how we catch those curveballs and throw them back that defines us. We may not have control over our diagnoses, but we sure can control how we respond to them. So, let’s grab life by the reins and steer it towards healing, happiness, and a whole lot of love. 🌟

Sending you all the love, light, and healing vibes your heart can hold. 💖

Stay fabulous and keep shining, Kelly 🌸
