Are you sick & tired of being sick & tired?

Chronically Positive Mom is here to help!

Why Chronically Positive?  Because chronic illness is tough! And yes, being positive in the middle of dealing with health issues and pain is tough too!  You already know that!  BUT, there are benefits of being positive–both physically and emotionally.  We’re going to help you find those little rays of joy to celebrate when we can.  And when things get really bad, we’ll mourn together.

We are building a world-wide support system for women with health issues, and we want you to join us!  You can click HERE for our Facebook Support group, where you’ll find an amazing, sweet, supportive group of women who really care about each other.  We’ve got more amazing things coming soon!

 

Do you feel like you’re you too sick to have fun? 

Do you do the things make you happy often?  Or are you just checking off your to-do list & crashing?  We’ve got LOTS to bring the fun back in the new book by Jen Hardy, “The Sick Mom’s Guide® to Having Fun Again.”  (including 100 things to do with your kids, even on your rough days!)   You can find out about the book  at www.thesickmomsguide.com.

 

 

Jen Hardy, the Chronically Positive Mom

 

 

Jen Hardy is an avid collector of eclectic diseases, and mystifier of physicians.

She is a Mom to 7 children, most of whom are delightful.  She has spent over two decades perfecting the art (ok, who are we kidding, perfecting is too bold a word) improving the way homes are managed when a parent has chronic illness.

Her methods have helped her raise 4 children who are in, or graduated from, college leading the lives of their dreams. (Truthfully they are living the lives that their Mom has dreamed for them, & hopefully the ones that they dreamed of too.) She has an amazing step-daughter bonus daughter, who is also in college.  At home, there are two amazingly sweet and feisty little ones who she says keep her young and determined to stay as healthy and mobile as she can.

Jen married her knight in shining armor in 2008, Together they are bravely facing the part of their wedding vows that said, “in sickness and in health.” The health part has been gone for a while. They are still silly in love and embarrass the older kids by frequently kissing and holding hands, with no plan of stopping.

 

 

 

Parenting and just living with her chronic issues, has been difficult for Jen

 to say the least. 

 

You can read an article about her conditions and getting to a diagnosis for one of her diseases at The Mighty if you CLICK HERE.  It can be really hard for Jen to be positive sometimes. (like when the ptosis–droopy eyes–gets so bad she can barely see to write!) But she’s working on this positive journey one day at a time, right here with you.

That’s why Chronically Positive Mom got started.  You’ll learn more about Jen as we go along, and she hopes to learn about you too!
