I am a victim myself, so today I hope to remind myself and make you know that the time to love and share your love with someone is now not later. Trust me is not worth procrastinating. To my big sister whom I loved so much and admired, you are truly the best – these…

PAIN is the manifestation of change. As someone suffering from two autoimmune diseases: Ulcerative Colitis and Enteropathic Arthritis, I have dealt with pain and discomfort throughout my life. Pain has the ability to force change and movement. There are usually two destinations of this movement: light and darkness. Pain can be the result of an action or inaction. It can be physical or…
