Sharing my life

Hi, I’m Iliana I am the face behind Exploring with Fibro. Previously a Military Working Dog Handler in the Army, I became a full-time mother in 2016 after being medically discharged due to my injuries while in service. When I’m not spending time with my wonderful kids and husband, I love writing about our adventures as we travel around in our Grand Design Solitude, my daily fight with fibromyalgia and interstitial cystitis.

I hope that by sharing about my life and my struggle with a chronic illness it gives someone some hope. That someone out there doesn’t feel so alone in this world and realizes that maybe it is possible to have a semi normal life. Yes, there are struggles, a lot of them. But I won’t let my illness keep me down.

My life summed up:
  • Wife
  • Mother
  • Army Veteran
  • Explorer
