As a young adult, I experienced the devastating effects of Epstein Barr and encephalitis. My immunity was shot. I could never seem to get my head above water, with one cough, cold or infection after another. During this time everything took energy. I felt like I tried so hard to do everything because that’s just what it took to do anything. Not only had I been amazingly ill, but the whole of the brain and all of the abilities for reading, writing, math, calculating, formularizing had to be re-learned.
Different care providers told me that “I would just have to live with the devastation in my system”. So, I understand what chronic illness and pain can cause in the body and the fight to find health.
