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!”
