Sadly these are all the blogs I can nominate now, sorry it’s not 11.

And here are the questions for my nominees:

  1. What is the significance of your blog name?

Just like our illnesses are chronic so is our hope. I think it’s a wonderful reminder to hold onto hope even when it seems like everything is falling apart.

  1. Chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?


  1. What time of day is your favorite time to write?

Afternoon or evening.

  1. What is your favorite album and why?  (Yes, I still call them albums.)

I don’t have one currently.

  1. What are you most thankful for and why?

There are so many things I’m thankful for. The support I receive from those who love me, my cats, this blog, my face book page, my doctors, my illness, and so much more. Be sure to check out my Thanksgiving Day post Thursday!

  1. If you could have dinner with three people, living or dead, who would you choose and why?

I would pick three of my close friends from my Teens with Lupus online support group. It would be amazing to connect in person and to spend time together being normal girls.

  1. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Where ever God calls me. I’m honestly not sure where that will be. I can barely plan five days into my future right now.

  1. Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny?

Mickey Mouse

  1. What is your day job?

I am a full time college student and a full time chronically ill patient.

  1. Why did you start blogging?

To raise awareness for chronic illnesses. To educate people. To encourage and support others who are chronically ill. It is something that has been on my heart to do for over a year.

Congratulations to the nominees!

Welcome, it is an honor you dropped by. I am Victoria. A twenty-something-year-old battling multiple chronic illnesses while learning how to thrive. Chronically Hopeful was designed to educate others and to provide support to those who are chronically ill. Proving encouragement to others is essential to me. I share my health on here. My major illnesses are Lupus, Hyperadrenergic Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, EDS, Mast Cell, Endo, and Ulcerative Colitis. I want to share my story with you hoping you will experience support; that someone else understands your pain, struggles, and frustrations. God has chosen not to heal me but to hold me. The more intense the pain the closer his embrace”. My faith, as a Christian has sustained me through the stormy waters of the past few chapters of my life. I desire to grow closer to God and lead others closer to Him. I help lead two online women’s Bible studies. I also post devotionals. I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree through Liberty University’s online program. Despite my illnesses, I have thrived in school. I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Psi Chi the International Honor Society, and Tau Sigma Honor Society. Abby is my service dog in training. I also have three cats Gracey, Fluffy, and Sadie Rose. I am looking forward to hearing your precious story. Sending hugs, prayers, and spoons. Have an amazing day!
