Chronic Conditions: Interstitial Cystitis, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
While in my teenage years I used to suffer but I kept it to myself! But after having my second child I was in so much pain. They began doing tests and procedures, and I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. By the age of 28 I was diagnosed with so many other chronic diseases, but I looked fine on the outside. The pain was debilitating, and I became paralyzed from the waist down for about a year. Through faith, family, and the fight I had in me, I became Limitless Edition and started taking my life back. This year I decided to return to the working world, and it has been every bit of amazing.
While home suffering and constantly getting new diagnoses, I began to research every Illness. I noticed that there were so many advocacy groups, group meetings, and counselors for everything. My goal now is to teach, uplift, and motivate debilitating sufferers how to Live life each day without limits. Count it all joy and keep going everyday as you achieve little milestones.
