Spoonie Essentials Box Review

Spoonie Essentials Box
I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

When I was first diagnosed with Lyme Disease, I felt lost and alone. My health had deteriorated to the point where I barely left my apartment. I only went out for work (on days I could make it in) and food.

But, one day during my lunch break, I came home to make a protein shake and found a pleasant surprise waiting for me.

My dear friend, Rosie, had sent a care package.

That care package was exactly what I needed at that moment! The care package told me that I had a friend who cared, who understood, and who loved me. Even if she didn’t know exactly what I was experiencing each day, she wanted to show that she cared. It meant the world to me!

I opened that care package and cried. It included an assortment of things: from healthy snacks, to a journal, to a neat travel cup, to a sweet card.

Even though my situation with chronic illness was less than desirable, that care package brought a smile to my face just when I needed it.
