More InformationMy courageous 15 year old daughter Eden has been sick for the past two years. Almost overnight she went from being an energetic, happy-go-lucky kid to chronically ill. She suffers from daily head pain, nausea, crippling migraines and deep fatigue. We have had blood tests, ultrasounds, MRIs and a CAT scan. We have changed our diet, seen naturopaths and specialists. Massage, therapy + acupuncture. Finally Children's hospital diagnosed her with Hashimoto's disease. My beautiful girl, fighting an invisible fight every day, needs a tribe. She has struggled to find friends that understand (or even believe in) her symptoms. She has sank into depression at times, wondering if she will ever feel well again. If anyone else has walked this path of autoimmune disease; or any "invisible" illness, would you mind tossing a word of strength to Eden? I am in awe of her spirit each and every day and hope that she can one day see the power in her journey. Thank you xo

Hi Lauren c\o Eden
You haveva brave daughter. I have several invisable illness. I am 47 years old know. And still dealing with the struggles of it all. We are survivors and I am trying to take things one day at a time. Its very difficult but thats all I can do. I am dealing with some health challenges as we speak but coming across your daughters story has given me more strength to keep going. I have a wonderful support team at home, family, friends, and online community. But I have to say there are moments when I feel this is so hard and its to much to deal with. I have fibromyalsia, Chronic Fatique Syndrome, TBI, Post Concussion Syndrome, Migranes and other health issues.
I can be reached at tyethread3131@ gmail.com. I am also a disability advocate where I volunteer my time to help others as it was given to me. As it still is. Feel better soon. Praying gor healing answer for a cure of all illness and diseases.
God is the best Doctor in the universe. Give it all to Him, just ask Him and believe that he has already healed your daughter and she will be well again. Please, just have faith. That’s all you need. Please. Don’t give up on Him.
I rad your story and it spoke to me. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease 6 weeks after my first child was born. I struggled with it for many years. At times I felt like my entire life was driven by doctors appointments and I was overwhelmed with a sense of helplessness. I felt completely out of control of my own body. I am now totally medication free and feel better than I ever have. Everyone is different but I had huge success adjusting my diet on the advice of an osteopath. It was literally life changing. I hope that you find the right thing for you and I promise you there is light and hope beyond this. Promise.
Sending love and light,

HI Eden- I love your name and the peaceful beauty it evokes. I have fibromyalgia and know a little bit about the limits our bodies give us.
For me I hurt when I am still and when I do something active so I make choices to have fun if I'm going to hurt anyway..
It sounds like you and your family are working hard on finding what can give you some relief.
It's a wide world with lots of things to learn and enjoy.i hope you can connect with others who geek out about the things you like too.
Book clubs online or in person, making art outside where others can see your handiwork... just some ideas.
Blessings to you and your family.
I have a group of mothers and daughters that would love to send her some encouraging words. Do you have an email address we can get for more info?
Sending all the strength I can to Eden!
