Good work homie
Hey there! Welcome to this space on instagram dedicated to daily living with a chronic illness and my journey to better health🤗.
I’m Juliet, a twenty something nursing student, living together with my boyfriend and our pet hamster 👋🏻.
Over 10 years ago (already!) I was involved in a series of traumatic accidents, which resulted in chronic pain that could not be explained, let alone be diagnosed. I lost my ability to play sports, go out with my friends, do all the fun stuff a teenager would do, and became depressed. I felt like my life was over, and I felt as if I could never achieve anything again.
Many years passed, and in 2015 I finally got referred to the right specialist that diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. I felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Finally I had some proof that the pain was real and I wasn’t making up all the symptoms. I could explain to people what I was experiencing and what I was dealing with everyday. If only the story got better from there on.. Life went on, I struggled with my studies, experienced a lot of stress and other traumatic events, felt too tired to do anything, became depressed again, and then my doctor prescribed me anti-depressants.. which turned out to be the worst idea ever. A year has since passed, and I realised my symptoms only started getting even worse, and I was not seeing any improvements. I got myself a new doctor, and a new diagnoses: Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
As a way to journal this long road to better health, I wanted to start a platform where other people could join and come along on this journey. I wish to share to positive, the negative and everything in between, related to AFS, chronic illness and my life.
I hope my story can help and inspire others🌞🌸 Please allow me to grow in telling personal details as I’m a very private person.
Thank you for reading and hopefully until my next post!
