Are you struggling with an autoimmune condition?
You are not alone.
There are many people who lead very productive lives, even though they fight a constant battle every day with their health.
When I was first diagnosed with Lyme Disease I traveled around to eight different doctors and they all had prescription medication that they wanted me to take.
A majority of them included antibiotics, steroids, tons of Tylenol for the pain and various medicines for my stomach.
Things may work for a few days, but then I would go downhill again.
Can you relate?
I lived on the couch.
Everything made me tired.
Everything hurt so bad that I didn’t want to move.
The hardest thing about it all though, was how alone I felt.
I felt that no one understood what I was going though.
I sometimes even felt that no one cared about what I was going through.
Now that I am on the path to healing, I want to be able to help other people who are struggling with autoimmune conditions as well.
Having people to talk with who want to bring you up and allow you to share freely is just as important as all the medicines and things that you take for your body.
You need to support your mental health.
There will be days where you just need a shoulder to lean on, or someone who understands.
So I created a community called Autoimmune Warriors.
It’s a space where you can share your story, learn about things that are helping others with autoimmune conditions, and lean on others when you need support.
I want it to be a positive space where you can learn more about yourself and discover the strength inside you.
If you or someone you know has an autoimmune condition, and you want to surround yourself with some positive and inspiring people, come visit and see what Autoimmune Warriors is all about.
