Secrets to Drama-Free Love

9 experts collaborate to bring you their advice on life, love and moving forward.

In November, I was asked to be a part of the third book in an international best seller called, Sexy Secrets to a Juicy Love Life. The 3rd book is titled, Secrets to Drama-Free Love, which includes 9 experts giving their advice on the stages your love life goes through. I specifically wanted to write for the stage: Self Love: The Path to Self Acceptance. When I was 25 years old and diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disease affecting my collagen, most have never heard of this illness before or what it can do to your body. Even after I tried to explain what it does, specifically to me, people would either think I was exaggerating or lying. I have had 56 surgeries correcting what my body does naturally which is to hyper-extend. I can dislocate every joint in my body and I am in constant pain every day, but the world is still moving forward, regardless how I feel or how depressed I might be that day. So I wanted to show people what I went through and how I overcame the rumors. 

I learned, I had to push those thoughts about me and my illness aside and just focus on what I was doing right this second in the present and where I was going in the future. Small minded people will always talk about the past, but rarely talk about the present or future, because that's all the ammunition they have on you, is the past and any past mistakes. Do not allow them to box you into a stereotype or trait just because they are the ones with the problem, not you. If it doesn't apply, let it fly. Secrets to Drama-Free Love  is available on
