Welcome! So glad you have stumbled across Sarah, Plain and Y’all! Here you will find a bit of everything from my personal journey with Fibromyalgia, Depression and ME/CFS, to product reviews, DIY’s, tips, tricks, and more!

 

Many of you have been following my various blogs for years, from the early days of chickenchick05, Sarah in Sydney, Slimming Down Sarah and more. I wanted to keep documenting my journey through life here but also add a bit more about those struggling with some chronic illnesses.

 

 

Why focus on Chronic Illness?

 

I know there are people out there hurting. Looking for someone who might feel the same. Struggling to see past the dark cloud of depression. Those women facing a hysterectomy at a young age. Those who haven’t showered in a week or those who have piles and piles of dishes who are to overwhelmed to start. Those who don’t understand why it feels like their bones hurt but no Dr will listen. The ones who’ve just quit their job because the fatigue is now just too much to handle at work. Those who need encouragement, the exhausted moms, the overworked teachers, and even the dads working hard to provide for their family.
 So if you are here because you struggle with any of the above I want you to know you are not alone in this journey!
