About Me

Hello there! My name is Ana. I was newly married and pursuing a career in ballet when my life took a devastating turn. I fell severely ill and was diagnosed with late stage Lyme Disease in 2012. In early 2017, I discovered that toxic mold was also playing a big role in my illness. I became so sensitized to mold that my dear husband and I were forced to leave our home and belongings in search of a place with cleaner air for me to breathe. Our search landed us in the middle of the desert, living in a tent with next to no camping experience.

I started this blog to chronicle our camping adventures, process my grief through writing, and lend my voice to others suffering from isolating illnesses. Now my desire is to offer hope and encouragement to others through my recovery story.
