Hello, and welcome to Livable by Design! I’m April Barcalow. As a fellow “spoonie,” I live with small fiber neuropathy, celiac disease, chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, rosacea, chronic daily headaches, migraines, and an undiagnosed autoimmune disorder. When my symptoms first began, I quickly discovered that many of the things that could help me were so very medical and elderly. I was determined to find a way through that didn’t require me to give up my personality and style. I write honestly about living with chronic illness, and share solutions and ideas to help you cope. I hope you find inspiration and encouragement here for this long journey we’re both on!
