An open letter to healthy people from a former healthy person
I’m in tears, silently cheering for this amazing warrior who is standing and giving a voice to all chronic survivors as you will be.
I hope you will rise up with her and pass this along.
Whether you have a chronic illness or you know someone with one, this wise young woman’s words will help to give meaning to so much that is unexplained.
Dear healthy people,

Really all you need to know about it for this blog post is that it’s a chronic autoimmune disease. I’ll share a link at the end for you to read more about it. (Here’s a distracting picture of me to help you along)
