As 2018 comes to an end, I can’t help but look back and see how far I have come. I started this year out having a major surgery, lots of unanswered questions, new medications and a lot of pain. My flares were constant and my skin was not in the best shape. My joints were giving me fits and I just didn’t feel like myself. Very depressed to say the least.
But on the bright side, i recovered well from my surgery, I worked out with my favorite instructor @shaunt
, I went for my first trip to Disney with my husband, my medication finally started working together and my skin looks amazing. My flares are few and far between and I have been working on my strength to relieve the hip joint issues. I actually feel like a normal person and it feels great.
The thing about an invisible disease is just that, it is invisible to everyone around you, even the ones that see you every day. It is hard to let down your walls and let people see just how bad things are because you don’t want to worry them. Just remember to be kind to everyone because we are all fighting an internal battle!
