“You really do get into this little depression for a minute.”
“I got myself out of it, but it was really scary to have to go through that.”
Kim had to go on medication for the symptoms, despite initially wanting to explore natural treatment methods.
“I unfortunately had to be put on medication to stop the symptoms. I tried everything natural for the longest time, and we chose the best route for me,” she expressed.
“Luckily right now everything’s under control, but autoimmune issues are really scary.”
“When you get a diagnosis — I didn’t realize I would be one of those people — but before I knew what it was, when it’s really up in the air, you get in your head and you think of every worse possibility of what’s going to happen and how you’re going to live your life.”
