EVENT: Together Walk | Virtual
My story in short: I've always been an open book about my experiences and am determined to advocate for invisible illness. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia March 2013 after seeing countless doctors and having many exams done. My symptoms: chronic PAIN, fatigue, and what we call "fibro fog". My symptoms began after a long never ending battle with Thyoid Cancer and mobility issues after ankle surgery gone wrong. Fibromyalgia is difficult to cope with along with other chronic invisible illnesses because people don't understand what they can't see. I hope to see in the coming years an increase in knowledge, research, awareness, and ultimately a cure for this life changing chronic condition. This is the beginning of what could hopefully be a huge walk in the coming years. We need a NYC walk! Join me to start it off.
