Explant Scheduled 3/11/19
Symptoms: decent energy, motivated, neuropathy (electrical shocks/"body bugs"), balance issues, dry eyes/double vision, muscle fatigue/soreness (legs)
After years of searching for answers, getting MORE SICK by the day, finding my "WHY" after an internet search was HUGE for me! There is nothing more frightening than feeling your body FAIL and having doctors basically say they can't do anything to really help you because they don't fully understand what is going on. I often wished medical tests would show cancer because I just needed to understand how my body could be SO SICK! Suffering and pain is DEPRESSING and when you don't see a way to escape it; no pills to take, alternative medicine doesn't work, no OUT, well what then?!?! I found myself so down and out over the years, I even contemplated suicide more than once because living this nightmare just wasn't worth LIVING :(
After praying HARD, God directed me to a light at the end of my narrowing tunnel...the "google" light where SEARCH: 'sick with breast implants' introduced me to the world of Breast Implant Illness. I found myself swimming around in FB support groups reading my story over and over and OVER again in the stories of other women. They felt my pain, they cried my tears, they shared my HELL, and those who had EXPLANT were screaming stories of HEALING JOY!!! Thank GOD for His direction in finding BII and to the wonderful women who have created websites and support groups to help all of us know we are NEVER ALONE!!
Over 61,000 women supporting each other through the THICK of this illness...what a true BLESSING!
