Hi there. This Patreon page is my outlet for the craze called life with fibro. I'm battling my chronic pain, fatigue, problems to focus, asthma and allergies with my often dark sense of humour, although I won't lie, there are also days where a blanket fort and crying sound like the best way to tackle it. Hubby and I hail from Berlin, where we live with our two not-so-graceful but very loveable cats, Tüte (m) and Kami (f).
I'm still enrolled in university and trying to finish my BA in German and historical linguistics even though fibro has made this semester hell, especially due to the fact that I just recently discovered that all my problems actually have a name and are, in fact, not normal. I reached the point of no return in January 2017, the point at which I had to acknowledge that I can't continue pushing myself, and had to quit teaching (hopefully only temporarily) because I'm in no way able to do a good job, or even push myself out of the house for adulting regularly enough right now. I'm still learning to take it one day at a time, sometimes even one hour at a time, and it's hard for me to lose the job I love and my financial independence (don't get me wrong, hubby is great and absolutely supportive and currently earning enough to keep us comfortable, but I have hardly enough to cover my personal bills with the small scholarship I'm getting at the moment).
Most of my (blog-like) posts here will be public to make as many people as possible smile, so you don't have to become a Patron to follow and interact with me, but I will be forever grateful to everyone who does. I will occasionally post pieces of my writing, like short stories, rhyming stories, poems, and the like, and will make those available to all patrons. I will also sometimes add photos to my posts, so be prepared for an overload of cat cuteness, pretty skies and flowers, weird random stuff, and maybe even me.
Oh, and I absolutely love to get feedback, so please don't be shy.
Fight on, spoonies, we can make it. <3

I won't lie, I love going somewhere and just having a nice cup of coffee while reading or writing or studying. Thanks for making it possible without me having to feel guilty. <3
Book Lovers
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
I love reading, and supporting other indie authors by buying their books. I also like getting textbooks instead of having to go to the library, because leaving the house costs spoons. Snuggling up on the couch costs fewer spoons. <3
Foodies
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
I love getting pizza or sushi every now and then. Thank you so much for treating me! <3
Gamers
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
I'm a gamer girl, currently GMing one campaign and playing in three others. Gaming allows me to escape my own crazy life for a day at a time. <3
Adults
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
OK, I know, adulting is necessary, so this tier is dedicated to actually paying bills and stuff. Less fun but important, so much love to you <3
Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
At this point, I'll be able to pay my equal share of our family bills as well as my own health insurance again, plus have a little bit extra for books and coffee. Thank you so, so much for believing in me <3
