the talk

hey best friends.

i've been thinkin.

i normally don't enjoy 
speaking of this subject
 but it's time for the talk.

about chiari.

i concur.  we need to talk about it.

this is a normal brain
and the brain of someone with chiari.

see how the brain
smooshes into the neck?

well, they have to get it cut out.

their brain is never the same.

it hurts forever.

it stinks.

more people need to know about it.
more people need to research it.

there needs to be a cure.


it means a whole lot to me.

this is me after my 2nd surgery.

will y'all help spread the word?


  1. it would be cool to organize a 5k or something in hopes to raise money for research?!
    you are so brave!!!

  2. I've never heard of chiari before now but I'm with you--awareness, research, cure!
    You really are a brave lady, you know that?

  3. oh my gosh. i had no idea! you are such a strong woman!!!!!

  4. oh my goodness! i am new to this topic too... holy cow... i would love to hear more about your experience!!!

  5. Kimmie! I had heard the word Chiari, but seeing that picture of you makes the whole definition a lot more real.
    Thank you for sharing.


whacha think?
