Hi! My name is Lindsi and I have been dealing with chronic illness for a about 8 years now. Initially diagnosed with Hashimoto's but also found out its cause was chronic Lyme and co-infections. It's been a roller coaster ride, but I learn more and more everyday about how to manage, heal and thrive in spite of my circumstances!
I am married to my husband Joe for almost 10 years. He has been such a blessing to me and a vital part of my healing as my biggest supporter. I know a lot of people who go through chronic illness do not have the best support system. It is a lot for loved ones to bear! Being sick and in pain all the time puts a damper on everyone’s life. Plans are cancelled, nights are filled with not doing much, moods are changed easily, and fun is put on hold. I couldn’t imagine the pain of going through something like this alone. He has been next to me every step of the way.
He's been by my side during doctor appointments, helping me with my body pain by rubbing my neck and back when asked, running me baths, doing the laundry some weekends to help my stress level, keeping the kids preoccupied so I can rest and by giving me a shoulder to cry (or sleep) on whenever I needed him. I honestly couldn’t begin to imagine what my life would look like without him.
I spend my life as a stay-at-home mom of 3 boys who loves to make herbal skincare over at Holistic & Hopeful. Njomai is 15, Matthias is 12 and Eli is 8 years old. They are wild, and loud and funny and silly and make my life better every day I get to be their mom. I do my best to provide a non-toxic environment with whole foods and clean products. I love my life as their momma and do my best to keep them healthy and happy!
I enjoy cooking, baking, swimming, being outdoors (although Georgia is a beast!), all things herbs, going to farmers markets and finding good organic restaurants when I have the energy and I'm feeling well.
Thank you to all who continue to support my family and this journey of mine. I appreciate every one of you. Xoxo.
