I’ve striven my whole life not to define myself by my autoimmune disease. But when it’s kicked me in the ass over and again for nearly two decades, it’s kind of hard to ignore it. It took me forever to grasp that acceptance is the most essential part of healing. So I’m finally putting it all out there. Am I scared? Yes. But I hope that this venture will help those who live every day in constant battle with their own bodies. Like me.
Auto-immune diseases blow.
