In 2003 I was diagnosed with a major chronic illness that has changed my life. Now I can say it’s for the better. At first I was miserable, but not any more. I still have my bad days but I hope to help others from what I’ve learned.
My chronic illnesses are: Ulcerative Colitis, Myasthenia Gravis, Fibromyalgia, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Anemia, Mitral Valve Prolapse and Rhuematoid Arthritis. Most are autoimmune diseases that run in my family. I’m known as the Autoimmune Queen.
My goal in life is to be an advocate for people with disABILITIES of any kind by doing all I can to be sure that people are judged by who they are and not what they can’t do. Let’s get the word out – being chronically ill doesn’t mean you look sick!
I’ll be writing about health issues, chronic illnesses, medical equipment and supplies and offering support with a bit of humor on the side.
