Getting diagnosed with a chronic illness is a life-changing event.
There was getting my diagnosis. A diagnosis I have never heard of before.
There was the realization that my doctor couldn't really do anything to help me.
There was years of trying to manage my illness on my own without having access to the resources or information I needed to heal or live better with illness.
Now 15 years past my diagnosis, in this video I talk about what I wish I had known about chronic illness when I was first diagnosed.
I'd love to hear what you wish you had known in the comments!
