About Life With Us

My name is Ashley,

In 2016 I started filming about my Cervical Dystonia (head tremors). I tried to film everything, my ups, my downs, and everything in between. I was able to connect with people all over the world that are also battling with Dystonia. 



Thankfully, after many doctor appointments, and trial and error, I was able to find the perfect treatment to stop my tremors- acupressure and physical therapy. Because there is still so much about Dystonia that is not well known, doctors feel most comfortable treating this condition with Botox. Unfortunately, there are people all over the world suffering from tremors that do not have access to medical care- especially botox. I took this opportunity to share with the world everything I was learning, sharing the exercises that were giving me positive results, and sharing the list of "triggers" that I had found to make my head shaking worse. 

Although I still post any updates on my Dystonia, and any information pertaining to that, I want the world to see that I am so much more than Dystonia. Since getting my tremor and depression under control I have began vlogging on the things I am passionate about. It is so exciting to be able to share what I love with the world! One of my most popular videos is a tour of the Portland Art Museum, during the Laika exhibit:



So, now that you know a bit about me and my background, you're probably wondering, why did I create a Patreon? 

It feels so awkward petitioning for money, especially since I will continue to share my vlogs regardless of what happens. So maybe the best way to phrase this is, what would I do with my donations? Realistically, they are 100% going towards defeating the biggest monster in my life, student loan debt. As a teenager fresh out of high school I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. But school counselors encouraged me to just go, and figure it out along the way. Except, I had no aim.  I did as they suggested, and took a little bit of everything. But with no real direction, I ultimately found myself in over my head with debt, without a promising career. It haunts me. This debt constantly eats away at me.

In 2018 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and polyarthalgia. Aside from the pain, the fatigue keeps me home, unable to hold down a job. Thankfully my husband works, but my personal source of income is YouTube, and the random crafts I sell on Etsy. 

Now, I've seen many Patreon users put their donations towards new filming equipment, or even a new computer. As awesome as that would be, not suffocating under the weight of a $33k school debt would feel even more amazing.

And if you simply cant donate, no sweat! I honestly still hope you will tune into my channel and see what I have to offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
