I started this blog because I know what it feels like to wonder if there is actually something wrong with you or if it’s all in your head like everyone says it is all because you look fine on the outside.
The days, weeks, months and sometimes years waiting for the test results and when you finally have a name for what is wrong with you, it feels great, but at the same time it can really be an emotional time. It’s not in your head, you finally have a diagnosis. But after the diagnosis comes all the changes that the illnesses bring when they come into your life.
I also know what it’s like to have little to no support from family and friends because you were fine one day, and not fine the next.
I am 23 and I have been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, Endometriosis, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Anxiety and Depression.
Four years ago I got married to my wonderful husband, About four months later, my health took a turn for the worst and then came all the doctors, the tests, the scans, the medications, the surgeries, and losing everyone I cared about because they don’t see how I was fine and then suddenly I was far from fine.
My illnesses are called “Invisible Illnesses” because only on the inside you can see how much of a mess I am with all the scar tissue, the scars, the organs sticking together and swelling when I push myself too hard.
I have met some of the best people in support groups. Reach out, you never know whose lives will be touched by you.
I also started blogging about four years ago as a way to deal with my illnesses and all the trials that go with it.
