Welcome to Chronically Crappy! I’m keen to spread the word that life with chronic crappiness and disability can be adventurous, rebellious, hilarious and fulfilling.
Clearly Alive Art
Clearly Alive Art officially launched late 2012. It became Amber Nicole’s primary avenue for sharing her adventures of living with Adrenal Insufficiency. By that point, she had been already living with the diagnosis of Primary Adrenal Insufficiency for several years. She believed that her unique insight could be used to inspire and encourage others. She received her first cortisol pump in 2014.
I’m Michelle. In 2015 I did a crazy thing, and began a new and rarely used treatment. I use an insulin pump to deliver cortisol, a hormone that sustains my life after losing my adrenal glands to malignant pheochromocytoma.
The change has been incredible. No it doesn’t cure cancer, but it’s given me my fight back and I’m living a full life in spite of cancer and the damage it’s caused.
Since then, it’s become my mission to help others fight. To inform and empower patients like me. There ARE better days ahead and we will change the world one small step at a time. This is not just for ourselves, the people walking this path behind us will look at our lives and know– there is hope.
