If you were to look at me, you would see someone who is young, joyful, and healthy-looking. I am young and joyful, but I am not healthy. I deal with multiple chronic illnesses: lupus, idiopathic hypersomnia, and asthma. I also dealt with a pituitary tumor until I was healed from it. My health problems began when I was 11, but I would not learn my diagnoses until 14 years later at 25. This was in large part because I had a hard time finding doctors who would believe me since I didn’t “look” sick. Shortly after my diagnoses, my health plummeted to the point that I became disabled for over a year. My health has stabilized since then, and I have been in an upswing, but every day is still a struggle.
