Hey there!

I’m Shelby, and I am a newly licensed foster mom as of June 2020! In 2017, I was also diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Myasthenia gravis, characterized by muscle weakness in the voluntary muscles in the body (but more on that in my later posts). 

My husband, Preston, and I have been through so much and have such a unique set of circumstances between my illness and our choice to become foster parents so young. So, I decided to create a blog to share our experiences, from my chronic disease to the foster care system, and everything in-between!

About Me

I’m so excited about this blog! These last few years have been so hard for me, and it’s time that something helpful and beautiful comes out of it; thus, Chronically Caring. Right as I was graduating college, starting my career, and learning who I was, I had to let go of the life I was used to and learn how to cope with being chronically ill. This blog is about many things: becoming a foster mom, having a chronic disease, and my passion for self care and exogenous ketones. Enjoy!
