When Life Is Not Kind To You, Be Kind To Life

Sometimes you feel like life is not kind to you, but if you are kind to life, it makes it a better place.

I was 21 years old in 1999 when I was diagnosed with IBD / Chrons disease. I had my first bowel surgery in January 2000. Since then, my life has been crazy with surgeries.

I have been through 15 big bowel surgeries and one of them went so wrong – they put an epidural in the wrong spot-  that I had nerve damage and a part of my leg became paralysed. I also had a lot of fistulas and surgery for that.

In 2010, I had to have an ostomy bag, and at the same time they found out I had diabetes. They believed it was a type 1.5 also called LADA Latent Autoimmune Diabetes Adulthood. But after a fail blood test, where they were not sure, they decided it was a Type 2.

I struggled a lot with way too high blood sugars because of my IBD, and I could not control it. Then in 2014, a new doctor thought it was strange for a type 2 to have such high blood sugars, so he took another blood sample and it showed up as Type 1.5, so now I had to inject insulin, like a Type 1.

I have 3 autoimmune diseases now. IBD, Type 1.5 and mild psoriasis. It’s often that if you have one, you can get more. BUT! Life is great after all. I am happily married and I have a great and beautiful daughter who is 14 years old now️. I have an electric small scooter that I totally blinged, that’s just me. BLING makes me happy every day and everywhere I go.

When I had to start injecting insulin many times a day, I decided to make “Bling Your Pen,” a small case for your insulin pen. I loved it! And so did a lot of others. Especially children, teens and women! Lyfebulb has made such a big difference for me, loving the “Bling Your Pen” just as much as me, and choosing to help me make it real on the Market Place. I am so HAPPY!

I choose to make it a good day every day, even though I am very sick now, and in the hospital almost 20-30 % of my life for pain treatment.

 I will continue to try and make a positive difference in the world as long as I live. So far, the world is also giving so much back to me.

My motto is: Don’t worry be happy! And “Bling Your Pen!”
