Hello, and welcome to Sunlight in Winter!

I’m Christy, and I’m an aspiring physical therapist.  I started this blog several years ago to share what I’ve learned on my own personal journey with chronic pain.

From there my focus has grown.  Now I also write about health & fitness, developing a healthy relationship with your body, and my journey through life itself.

I also run My Sacroiliac Joint Saga, a blog focusing on sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

I hope what you read here is helpful to you!

For more about me:

My story: Gives you a little more background info about me, my journey, and why I write a blog.

My writingSuper personal stuff I still can’t believe I put on the internet, but I keep going in the hope of helping others.

  1. Hi! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about a year ago, and spent a large part of the year trying to hide my true self (and its misery) from everybody around me. I have only recently started to come out of that, when I found your blog, and felt I could really connect with it. As a scientist, I especially like how you include scientific literature references to article regarding the medical aspects of chronic illnesses, because I see so many websites/blogs cashing in on people’s desperation with dubious information. So anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your posts. I have recently started my own blog here trying to document my journey through academia with fibromyalgia. Here is the link if you’d like to check it out. :) Thanks again!

    1. Hi Fibronacci, thank you so much for the comment! I’m so glad you appreciate my scientific references. I know exactly what you mean about hating the sites that cash in on people’s desperation– precisely because I used to be one of those desperate people! I’m looking forward to following your blog (and I love your username, by the way!).

      1. Thank you!! The name came out of brainstorming session for a “arty/fibroey” name, LOL! I know what you mean about being desperate by the way. My husband has books here too by people who really think they know how to cure FM and they’re all bogus. While I am the first to admit that scientists don’t have all the answers, I feel like they have a few more answers than those poor misguided folks. Anyway, it was great meeting you! Always lovely to have friends who understand the struggle (and the science behind it)!! I hope you enjoy my blog as well. :)

        I would also like to nominate you for the Liebster award for your wonderful blog. I have more information here >> https://fibronacciblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/15/the-liebster-award/
