The fears around life with an autoimmune disease are real. You likely had big dreams and goals envisioned for your life. You likely imagined your future to be one without the limitations of an autoimmune disease. 

Then you got your diagnosis and the fears came flooding in. 

Your mind started swirling with all the “what if’s.”

Life can change on a dime. 

And it’s important to honor the fears and ALL the emotions that come with autoimmune life. But just because life changes, doesn’t mean that it’s over.

What we choose to do with that fear can determine how our story unfolds.
