HAWMC Day 19 – Sitting In The Same Chair, Worlds Apart…

This was a very hard post to do today…going through the photos around the time of my diagnosis stirs up a lot of things I’ve stuffed down.

Wego Health asked: Post a vintage photo of yourself with a caption about the image and where you were in terms of your health condition.

It’s a BOGO Day for you. (Buy One, Get One…) I wanted you to see the before and the after… I’m sitting in my chair at the kitchen table with the bay window behind me, but I’m no longer the same.

My twelfth birthday, less than nine months before my diagnosis.

Sixteen months after my diagnosis.

Notice the Medic Alert bracelet shackled on my wrist. Yes, I did intentionally use “shackled”.
