Hi. My name is Sandy Burkett. (aka SjoDry). I am a 63 y/o Southern Belle who grew up in Chattanooga, TN., but somehow landed in Pittsburgh, PA.
Happily married for 41 years, my husband Steve and I have raised two amazing kids and have been blessed with two precious grandchildren.
Along with many moves in my lifetime, I have managed to snag quite a few diagnoses through the years.
This blog is a look at my life with chronic illness. I decided to entitle the blog, The Last Diagnosis.. believing that I had just received my “likely” LAST diagnosis. However, I have learned that my Immunologist was correct when he told me, “Once you get one autoimmune illness, the others like to pile on”! While this story is my personal journey, the experiences, sentiments, reflections and frustrations are universally had by all who live with chronic illness.
I am so glad that you found my blog! I will however give you a heads-up that my body does not always cooperate with my creative writing intentions on a regular posting schedule. For this reason, I invite you to click on the subscribe button to receive my new posts when they are published.
