Melissa Cox + Lipstick Warpaint

I first founded Lipstick Warpaint in 2014. I was many months into treating late-stage Lyme Disease (MSIDS/Complex Chronic Illness) and wanted to connect with a community of warriors - those fighting to reclaim their health and wellness from serious illness. I came up with the name "Lipstick Warpaint" because of my love for bold lips, strong voices, and courageous living.

As part of the Lipstick Warpaint community, I created #LymeDontKillMyVibe, a hashtag primarily used on Instagram to create positivity and awareness surrounding Lyme and associated conditions. While the hashtag and involvement grew and grew, I paused my writing on the blog, unclear of how I wanted to proceed. Quite honestly, I wasn't sure how I wanted to speak about my illness. Up until now, I've shared bits and pieces of my recovery on my Instagram: @mellypeacox

As I've approached healing from a holistic viewpoint, I've truly been able to regain my footing with a more intentional idea of how to share my stories.

I am dedicated to sharing my journey authentically, providing as much of a resource as I can through my own personal experience, research, education, advocacy, and commitment to a holistic lifestyle.

My wish is to be a resource to empower others to step into wellness, while creating a safe place to share growth.

More About Melissa

I'm a writer, pisces, empath, dog lover, mostly residing in a small beach town off the Gulf Coast of Texas as I heal from complex chronic illness. I'm quite nomadic, and travel throughout Texas every few weeks stopping in Austin, with frequent visits to Seattle, Wa. I believe in the healing power of sharing stories, honest self-reflection, small adventures, connecting with nature, and mind-body-spirit medicine.
