Okay, putting it out there with this VLOG! I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at a very young age. Until recently, I was "hanging in", so to speak. Then I reached a point where I could no longer really hang. I had new, somewhat debilitating symptoms present & while I look fine, most days I feel like curling up a dark room and not coming out. But with exception, I have not done this. I have decided to start a video blog, where my partner Tim and I share our recent journey navigating "the system" in an attempt to uncover diagnoses, treatment options for my conditions & getting through insurance denials. Contrary to what some doctors have told me, I am SO NOT the minority & I know that there are many going through the same struggles that I have and am going through. Just know that you are not crazy and that you are not alone. Over time, I'll share my story and my/our perspectives with you we've gained along this journey and I hope you'll reach out and share yours with me. I look forward to connecting with you!
