waking up

How to overcome chronic conditions, confidently navigate your own healthcare, and enjoy life to the fullest.

Hi there,

I'm Tricia. I am many things to many people, but for one year of my life, I had four surgeries in three different hospitals. I woke up many times that year to learn new facts about my body and the way the healthcare system really functioned, itself made up of other bodies.

After more than a decade of fighting for diagnoses and proper treatment, I managed to overcome multiple chronic conditions and start to live the life I always wanted. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it. I'm sharing my story as a guide for anyone struggling and suffering on your own medical journey.

Participate! Having talked to hundreds of people with chronic disease, I've discovered that most of us have had at least one very unexpected experience in healthcare. I've begun gathering these to share with healthcare professionals and to help others like us.
