Life doesn’t always hand you lemons. But pouring lemon juice in the cut doesn’t serve you either! As you know, I have Hashimotos, an autoimmune disease affecting the thyroid. It is VERY common for autoimmune diseases to come in multiples. Once the body has learned to attack itself, it will never UNLEARN that. Well, today I went to the dermatologist and he confirmed I have vitiligo, an autoimmune disease where my body attacks my melanocytes of the skin. Am I happy about it? NO! But to lose hope, lose faith, lose my positivity wouldn’t serve me well either!
My doctor asked me if I was bothered by it and without hesitation I said NOPE! It’s a visual reminder to me of an often silent disease many people face with autoimmune disease. We MUST be diligent in our self care, diet and lifestyle choices! And healing absolutely BEGINS in our mind with our views on these diseases. We may stay positive and on top of a clear mind!
