About

I have been chronically ill for over 12 years, and probably my entire life (See https://addiemarie41.wordpress.com/my-health-story/ ).

I have recently been diagnosed with chronic neurological lyne disease, as well as bartonella, mold toxicity, POTS, adrenal fatigue and possible damage to my pituitary gland. Before that my diagnosis’s included fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, degenerative disk disease, psoriatic arthritis, hypothyroidism, costocondritis, asthma, unexplained tachycardia, unexplained regurgitation in 2 heart valves, IBS, chronic infections, chronic migraines with aura, anxiety, panic disorder and bipolar disorder, plus more I probably forget right now.

While I accept that I am chronically ill, and it is a part of who I am…I refuse to accept that I am doomed to lose my life to these diseases. I refuse to accept that I have to sacrifice my happiness and quality of life just because I am ill. So I am constantly working to feel better!

This blog is my stream of consciousness, the good, the bad, and the ugly.  I write about whatever is on my mind; everything from new treatments I am trying, and what is working and what isn’t, to explanations of my diagnosis’, to my rather nasty divorce from my husband The Addict (See https://addiemarie41.wordpress.com/my-marriage-story/ )

Welcome to my truth.
