About Me!

As I said before, my name is Jenn! I'm nineteen years old and, while I was a little late for what is now known as Web 1.0, I do remember it from elementary school, and it's those fond memories that have inspired me to design my website like this (that, and the complete and utter boredom of being homebound).

The short version: I'm queer, disabled, and neurodivergent. I use she/xe(y)/ze pronouns. My disabilities have left me homebound for the time being and I've decided to put my newfound free time to work by learning how to code and make websites.

QUEER

DISABLED

I was born with asthma and what I now know to be eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), an allergic inflammatory condition of the throat, and in March of 2020, I caught COVID for the first time, and it triggered a myriad of yet-to-be-diagnosed disabilities that I still have yet to cope with. In the two years since, I have managed to get diagnosed with fibromyalgia (fibro), a medical condition defined by the presence of chronic widespread pain, but it's certainly not the only thing that I'm struggling with. I also highly suspect myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), given that fatigue has become more and more of an issue for me the more I try to "push" myself to improve. My pain and fatigue have left me unable to walk without a mobility aid (I currently alternate between a cane and crutches as-needed) and trapped in my home while I work with doctors to figure out what's wrong and how I can learn to manage it.

Other disabilities under consideration: postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), multiple sclerosis (MS), hypoglycemia, anemia

NEURODIVERGENT

I was diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, and depression in late middle school/early high school after struggling in the classroom. My anxiety and depression have improved greatly, even in the face of the global pandemic and the onset of my more severe health issues. I've learned a few coping methods for my ADHD, but have yet to find a medication that helps me with some of my more out-of-control habits, so it's going to be a long process of trial-and-error for that one.

Other neurodiversities under consideration: autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder
