About the Author

…Slower than an eighty year old lady…

…Weaker than the average ten year old…

…Able to accrue thousands of dollars of medical bills in a single month…

Miss Waxie has been sick since her earliest years, though it took medical science a good 20+ years to catch up with what she already knew. Girl’s got some problems.

Now on medications that range from the sublime (anakinra) to the absurd (like stuff that has possible side effects of lactation, seriously) and everything in between, Miss Waxie had been finally diagnosed with a genetic condition so rare, there are less than 300 known cases in the United States! Still, that doesn’t stop her body from cooking up new problems. And having more comic medical adventures.

A Comic Life, Indeed intends to show – for better or for worse – the ups and downs of being chronically ill in your 20s, hopefully for the better. Welcome to a day in the life of a walking, talking House episode. Just as witty, just as bitter, and with as much impish charm. Promise.

To contact Miss Waxie about her work, please email her at

    Hi, Miss Waxie! I love reading your blog… I found it through BYDLS… I think… but I have fibrofog, so I can’t be sure! But, like Lisa above, I’m spreading the word about blogging for National Chronic Illness Awareness week!

    Always,

  • Hello,

    My name is Joseph Collins and I represent NursingHomeAbuseCenter.org. I’m contacting you today because I think our website would be a very useful resource to visitors of your blog (https://acomiclifeindeed.wordpress.com).

    Our website is an informational resource created to help the elderly and their loved ones who are concerned about nursing home abuse. Our site covers everything from signs of nursing home abuse to what steps to take if you suspect abuse. We also provide additional helpful information such as how to go about selecting and paying for a good nursing home.

    Diane J Standiford from the blog “A Stellarlife – Living a life with Multiple Sclerosis and all the rest” (dj-astellarlife.blogspot.com) has recently posted a link to our site on her blog, helping us in our mission of protecting the elderly. We would be honored if you posted a link to our site on your blog as well.

    All we need for our link is “Nursing Home Abuse” linked to http://www.nursinghomeabusecenter.org. The link should look like this: Nursing Home Abuse (but, of course, it should be hyperlinked, made clickable)

    Please let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Joseph Collins

    Public Relations Coordinator
    Nursing Home Abuse Center

      Dear Gloria, I’d be more than happy to guest blog during invisible illness week. Please shoot me an email to talk about the details – acomiclifeindeed (at) gmail (dot) com

  • I’m so glad that you found me through my blog. It was a treat to read your response and here I am visiting your site which is amazing. I LOVE IT.I also have many other articles on hashimoto’s thyroiditis and fibromyalgia among other things. From one person to another, let’s try and ignore the stupid things people say and go forward together.

    I’m about to hit my 30’s in Dec–and have been dealing with chronic illness (daily migraines and MS) for the past decade. It’s ruining my marriage and I feel like I lost myself-sigh. How can you stay so positive? I feel like I’ve got less than zero choices about my future and I hate that.
