My life was turned upside down in a single night October 2018. I went from having typical health challenges that everyone has as they get closer to 50 to fighting for my life. Multiple doctors from a variety of specialties, numerous SIBO treatments, a trip to Mayo, kidney surgery, and countless other diagnoses later, I am still fighting to be well. There has been a significant change in my mental health recently. I'm tired... really tired. Chronic illnesses take their toll on more than just a person's body. 

I've lost my optimism, my hope for better. Yet I keep going because that's what I do.
