I write because it helps me to get my thoughts out of my head. Â I have been writing for as long as I can remember but I was in grade seven or eight when I started to love poetry and just writing. Â I loved English in high school and I was lucky to have an amazing teacher for three of my four years there. Â He was a big influence on me and told me that I should write instead of going into my chosen profession.
I started writing again in my journal as a way to get what was in my head out. Â I now have four autoimmune diseases that are also invisible illnesses. Â I have Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease, I’m a type 1.5 Diabetic which it’s also called Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults or LADA, Lupus and Fibromyalgia. Â As a result of these illnesses I had become depressed and writing helped me to get what I was feeling out. Â I wanted to share what I was going through so that others would know they are not alone. Â If I can help just one person through their journey of autoimmune disease and depression then I know sharing my writing is a good idea.
I write for me and I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
