2/9/19 - Sick but HIDING IT is BII reality!
Explant scheduled 3/11/19
My whole adult life has been living in 'secret sickness', just sucking it up to get through life. I have hidden my struggles from most people, and those that were somewhat aware of them (friends, family, hubby) were only partially aware of my internal reality. I think I always thought that if anyone really knew what was going on, they would think I was completely INSANE! Chronic illness is the most misunderstood and underestimated health issue plaquing so many people in this world. God I hope that I can help increase awareness regarding breast implant illness, but also regarding ANY illness that robs people of their quality of life. I have learned such a hard lesson BUT am so grateful for it because it has filled me with a deep sense of empathy for humankind because I do believe that more people are suffering these days than not. I will spend the rest of my life trying to help others break free from these struggles by helping them learn better ways to cope and turning towards that which has continued to save me...GOD!
