Welcome to A New Kind of Normal! If you are looking for a community that thrives on fierce hope and staying spunky despite chronic illness, you have come to the right place!
A New Kind of Normal was founded way back in 2007. I was three years and three surgeries into my endometriosis diagnosis. My husband and I were waist high in fertility treatments. Despite the most amazing support from my husband, I began to feel more and more isolated and alone. No other 26 year old I knew struggled to get out of bed every morning.
I needed to find a new place. A place that was safe to share my joys and my fears. A place where I could connect with a community that understood. A place where I could be myself and grow to be more despite my illness.
A New Kind of Normal was born.
In the last ten (!) years A New Kind of Normal has grown and developed. What started as a little journal that I had no idea anyone else would ever read to a community full of amazing ladies (and maybe a few gents) around the globe. Fierce hope is spreading life wildfire through Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of social media. No longer do you need to fight the battle against chronic illness alone.
A New Kind of Normal hosts Blogging for Endometriosis Awareness every March. As it has grown every year, the dream is to become a year round campaign.
Every single day I am humbled by the amazing group of people that support A New Kind of Normal. God took was started out as pain and heartache and created something beautiful. He gave my pain purpose and I will be forever thankful.
