About me

Photo by Tina Leu Fotos

Oh hey, funny meeting you here!

My name is Shannon, and I live in Chicago, by way of the Washington, D.C. suburbs. I’m a sales rep for a custom apparel and promotional products company.

I have Hyperadrenergic POTS (dysautonomia), IBS, ADHD (without hyperactivity), OCD, anxiety, and depression sprinkled in for good measure. (You can read my overly detailed diagnosis story here.)

In my spare time, I volunteer for dysautonomia advocacy groups and I write to share my experiences about my health so others like me will feel less alone.

I love spending time in art museums, making trips to Target, ordering takeout, having private concerts singing alone in my car, crinkle cut fries from Portillo’s, and having Netflix/Hulu sessions with my friends.
