) Most of you don't know this, but for years I have struggled with a chronic illness. I've spent a great amount of time in doctors offices having testing done and taken many trips out of state to get a diagnosis. I was eventually labeled with Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder. Unfortunately, autoimmune disorders are sneaky and not the easiest to name. In MCTD, as in other autoimmune disorders, your immune system — responsible for fighting off disease — mistakenly attacks healthy cells. It is considered an overlap disease and is used by some doctors to describe a disorder characterized by features of systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, and polymyositis.
-My chronic illness has caused my body to reject certain foods, medications and just shut down on me at times. There were days that I couldn't grip a pencil to write or even walk. I've learned that one of the best things I did was to adopt a positive outlook on the whole situation. When I was constantly trying to figure out what was wrong with me (and how to fix it) the stress just escalated my problems. The other key helpful factor was to work with my doctors on the proper diet, exercise and medications to help make me well. - As a soon-to-be Mommy of 3 it is so very important that I take care of myself in order to properly take care of my babes! This is why I am so excited to partner with @walgreens
