Our History

Sickly Confidential is the lifestyle blog for the spoonie who wants to be the best, most confident, most unapologetic, version of herself.

We believe that you were given your health journey to teach others the deeper lessons on resilience, confidence, and how to thrive. And in your journey, you may have been stuck from time to time.

We know what you’re going through. You may feel like a burden. You may feel worthless. You want less stress and less anxiety. There’s a chance you want to improve your self confidence (especially with your scars and medical devices). And of course, you want to be happier. You want to date or end your fear of being alone. And you want to learn the tools to put your best self out there. 

We believe your health should not impact how great your life can be. And we’re here to share personal growth and relationship advice to get you to become the best version of yourself that you can.
