To raise awareness for chronic illness warriors, Arlene Garcia founded BitterSweet: Real Talk. As a chronic illness warrior, she knows first-hand what it is like to live with a chronic illness. After years of struggling with an autoimmune illness and genetic mutation, she learned how to cope with chronic pain.

Dr. Garcia offers coaching services for chronic illness warriors. She prefers the term warrior because she is a firm believer in the power of words. Instead of saying sufferer, she chooses a word that denotes strength. Dr. Garcia realizes that some chronic illness warriors may not always feel valiant but that should not give them the reason to refer to themselves as sufferers and claim suffering into their existence forever. Her goal is to help others reestablish a purposeful life. For more information, visit Coaching.

As an educator, she has advised thousands of students. She draws on over twenty years of experience and offers consulting services. Visit Educational Consultant for more information.

Dr. Garcia is also a published author and inspirational speaker. For more information, visit  Publishing and Editing Consultations  and Speaking.
