Free Step-by-Step Programme to Take Your Life Back from Your Chronic Illness.

Learn the Secret to Finding Your Happiness Again in 7 Days!

Getting diagnosed with a chronic illness is a life altering moment – and it’s only the beginning of a really long journey. It’s not the flu. You don’t get diagnosed, given a week of bed rest and then you’re good to go.

No. Instead, you get a whole bunch of options that may work (or not)… and a pat on the back from a doctor while they say “good luck!”

After 11 years of dealing with a variety of chronic illnesses by myself. I was forced to rethink and re-evaluate how I  choose to live my life.

It wasn’t only the fact that I didn’t want my days to fade away in years of nothing. It was that I refused to believe that this was the fate for every single chronic illness warrior out there.

I wanted to prove it was possible to cohabitate with a chronic illness in peace and rebuild a life. And here I am, ready to share all my practical, tactile and realistic advice on managing a chronic illness so that we can get your life back on track too.

The Discerning You is a platform that I have started to show you that there is someone out there who knows how alone you feel, how confused you are and how difficult it is to get through this.

This is the one place where you won’t feel like you have been thrown in the deep end (again) because I’m going to walk this journey with you and help you find your way.

I am no more capable, intelligent or strong than you. This isn’t a unique story of success. It’s something we can all get right. It’s a joined success we can all share.

I am just here to show you the priceless coping tactics that a lifetime of adopting a discerning mindset has given me.

I started The Discerning You because I don’t want you to go through all the hardships I had to. I have learnt the sh*tty lessons about chronic illness management and I have developed step-by-step strategies to implement them properly.

If you are looking for like-minded individuals that you can share their experiences with…

I’m here, and I’ve got your back!
