“If I can do it, so can you. Being a ChronicBabe is a state of mind. Living amazingly in spite of illness? Yes!” – Editrix Jenni

Are you a ChronicBabe?

Yes. Oh, wait—too fast? You have some doubts? Let’s see: Are you a chick? Check. Do you have a chronic illness? (You know, something that’s stickin’ with you, like fibromyalgia or depression or HIV?) Check check. Are you ready to kick ass in spite of it? Are you grinning as you read that? Triple check. Yes! I proclaim you a ChronicBabe.

My Mission:

As a young woman with multiple chronic illnesses, I get you—I know what it’s like to feel limited, to want more out of life. That’s why I created ChronicBabe: To help you have an amazing life in spite of illness. I’ll help you gain new confidence, boost your career, nurture friendships, have great sex, save more money, and be even more fabulous.
