Hello, I'm Bevin Niemann and I've struggled with chronic fatigue and daily pain for over a decade. I've been to countless doctors and holistic practitioners, taken every supplement under the sun, have a binder full of blood tests and pretty much changed everything in my life in an attempt to get back to full health and vitality - still an ongoing journey.
 


I've also been a leadership mentor, coach and teacher for highly sensitive people and intuitive empaths for the past seven years. I've noticed a substantial number of the sensitive people I've met also struggle with daily, chronic illnesses.

First, I want to offer my compassion, as I know personally how hard this can be. What it's like to have to get up and still participate in life, even when you don't feel like it. Or looking on the outside like you are fine, when you're really not. Especially how chronic illness can affect your relationships and your ability to work.
 
This is a non-scientific, anonymous survey which takes about 10 minutes to complete. I won't ask you any personally identifying information and please do not share any. I believe together, we will uncover some important trends, which I am happy to share with you and everyone who participates. To help us gather more data, please forward this survey to others you know with a chronic condition. 

Also, I'm not trying to draw a direct correlation between being a sensitive person and having chronic illness as there is no evidence to support that. Yet, I've noticed chronic illness may affect us more deeply than others. I do not have any medical training, nor is this survey intended to diagnose or consult with anyone on their medical condition.
