My story

My name is Jenn! I'm a school counselor from Texas! I was recently diagnosed with a super rare Autoimmune disease, gastroparesis, pots, and possibly Huntington's disease. When I'm weak, this is when I struggle the most. I feel SO trapped in my body and unable to do anything. I feel useless in bed. How can anyone love me if I'm just in bed all the time? I spent so many years DOING, that not doing is foreign and scary to me. Then I saw this community, and their acts of kindness, and thought, "You really don't have to be strong to be kind....at least physically." No matter where we are, we can be kind. No matter how weak, we can be kind. No matter what the situation, we can be kind. And this gave me power, thus giving me a little more strength.
