10,000 Hits

I meant to write a post to celebrate reaching 10,000 blog hits. Then life got busy.

Lo and behold, I'm now at over 10,000 blog hits. That is extremely exciting for me. When I started blogging, I did not know where my writing would lead me. I just knew I wanted to write. I wanted to share my story. I was done being silent. I was done hiding. I was done ignoring the elephant in the room.

My name is Amber and I live with an incurable disease.

Allow me to talk about it. Allow me to share with you my triumphs and my setbacks as I navigate my life with this beast. Allow me to raise awareness about chronic diseases so that others can improve their quality of life.

Am I diseased? Yes. Do my diseases define me? Oh heck no! I am so much more than a list of diagnoses. I am, and will forever remain, Clearly Alive.

I hope y'all continue to follow me on this journey. I owe you an update on my gluten free baking adventures. I never told you about the five mile race and subsequent ER visit on May 5th (PS- Five months ER free!!! Yay!). I have not even begun to write about Addison's and college or Addison's and living in South Korea. To summarize, I have much more to share.

Here's to a life of continual adventure!

Here's to a life that will always fight to be Clearly Alive!


  1. Hey I have a quick question about your blog, could you email me when you have a chance? Thanks! -Cam

    1. Hey Cam, do I have your e-mail address?

  2. I feel like "the old me" when I inject. I use cortef and still struggle. I was diagnosed in April 2014 and it took years to diagnose me. When I have a big day ahead I sometimes inject half a vial of solo cortef.
