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 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!
