Welcome to Dancing In The Rain! My name is Maddie, I’m 17 years old, and I’m rocking the chronically ill life the best I can.

I happen to be a little weird, sassy and I’m trying to share my everyday thoughts, ideas and opinions with my keyboard, and now this blog. Here I rant, curse and laugh my way through my messy life and health. Family and health are so incredibly important and here my blog is filled with both, and the simple treasures of every day.

I love to read, draw and write through the struggles I face, one page at a time. My family and I own 6 horses and we run our own Barefoot Retirement business which I love with all my heart. I also attend college in hopes of one day becoming a published author.

I’ve been ill since I was 9, first diagnosed with Hashimotos and Hypothyroidism and since then Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Elhers Danlos Syndrome Type 3, Alopecia Areata and Raynaud’s Phenomenon.

I’m learning as I go, and I’d love to hear from you! I hope you’re all as well as possible.

Love and Spoons,
