Cherish Your Life
Organized by: Julie Andrade
Hi everyone, my name is Julie. I feel very uncomfortable about starting this, but I feel like knowledge takes you a long way. Two years ago I had a major change in my life. I thought it was the end of me. What was this cause?? CIDP was, (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelnating Polyneuropathy). Similar to GB, my immune system attacked my nerve cells. Imagine being a single mother of three boys not being able to care for them because you can't care for yourself. Learning to use walk and use your hands all over again was and still is a challenge at times, but I am the soldier that never gives up. After months of IVIG treatments that helped in many ways, it has it's effects. About to try a new one, but scared at the same time as I feel like I'm a guinea pig. I would like to get your help and try to start an awareness so people out there won't be in the dark about this life taking disease. I never thought that anything would happen to me until it did. Get educated with me. Thank you!
