I might start a series of Beauty for Spoonies posts

as a chronically ill gal who loves all things beauty and makeup, I know I’m not alone in my interests, and I think it would be super valuable to create a forum for sharing tips and tricks and advice on beauty for spoonies of every kind

I personally can only talk from the perspective of chronic autoimmune and neuropathic pain problems, but I’d love to convene with other enthusiasts or just about my own tiny insignificant tips into the void in the off chance that they might help someone somewhere someday

I’m sure there are others out there doing this already and that’s awesome but I personally haven’t seen much of it? Aside from a couple of blog posts and videos that made me so proud and happy that there are people out there willing to share their own battles and how they cope with them, even through little things that seem insignificant


(I get asked a lot of things, like how I do my nails while accommodating to my arthritis, or how I keep my lips in such good lipstick shape in spite of meds and frequent vomiting which leave my lips generally in need of tlc, and how I keep my eyebrows looking fierce despite meds thinning out my hair and even making a lot of it fall out. That’s kind of where this idea started brewing a long while ago. I think a lot of people have advice and ideas to share and even if no one else contributes or likes the idea, I definitely think there’s a place for it)

and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human
