Julie with her scruffy buddy, iggy.
julie IS a SURVIVOR OF LYME DISEASE, MOLD ILLNESS (CIRS), AND OTHER AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES. SHE IS ALSO A CERTIFIED INTEGRATIVE HEALTH PRACTITIONER and experienced project manager WITH AN MBA FROM SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY.
After 5 years living undiagnosed with Lyme disease and another 5 years treating it, I've experienced first-hand what it takes to heal from a complex chronic illness. Friends, family, and doctors often tell me, "I don't know how you do it." But really, there is nothing special about me.
If you didn't have systems in place to organize your time and goals before you got sick, it's almost impossible to get organized when your brain is foggy. Getting well should be your goal, not trying to find the right planner or app that will work for everything you need.
As a project manager, I'm trained to manage, prioritize, and budget for treatment in a way that made it manageable.
