I’m Alyssa, and I’m here to share my personal story about living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy with you.

Can I get real for a second? I think we put so much pressure on ourselves to seek happiness that when hard stuff gets woven into our lives, we resist it. But, over the years, I’ve learned some of my greatest lessons through my toughest messes, and so, I think it’s  absolutely necessary to embrace your struggles. Because, if there’s one thing that has held true in my life and will in yours, too, it’s that where you find your struggle, you will find your strength.

Here, you’ll find just that- stories of struggle and strength fueled by coffee and kindness while I get real about my life with a disability. Ready for the adventure?

BACK IN 2013...

...I began this website on a whim. I was compelled to share my story in some way, and despite not knowing anything about blogging, starting a blog seemed like the best avenue. Before diving into the blogosphere, I did a quick Google search on SMA which led to a whole lot of depressing (but, unfortunately, true) medical facts. After scoping the internet, I realized I wanted to find something more than just the prognosis of this disease.

I wanted firsthand stories- the good, the bad, and the ugly- of those affected by SMA, because living with this disease is so much more than a page in an online medical journal. So, that’s when I chose to take matters into my own hands.
