My journey started back in high school.
I got an incredibly mild case of mono. I didn’t even miss a day of school for it! But then I never got better. After a year of being told I just had residual mono symptoms, I finally got into a doctor that decided to run more tests.
Fast forward 11 years, 2 surgeries, countless doctor appointments and testing, one wedding, and 2 babies, I finally got my “this is your diagnosis!” I cried tears of joy for finally knowing I’m not a hypochondriac and knowing what’s wrong!
Managing my condition
Same struggles, but now I have a name for it and resources to help manage it!
