About me

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 life and 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, buying expensive candles out of my budget, and bingewatching television with my friends.
