"Hi, my name is Kris McElroy. My pronouns are ‘he/him/they/them.’ I live in the Northeast and I am a Mighty Super Contributor."

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

Kris says he has always struggled making the time to take care of himself.
