Hi, I'm Kristin and I go by mini2z (two-zee) online. I'm new to advocacy but I'm advocating for Lupus, Diabetes, Migraines, Chronic Pain, and Mental Health. My Chronic Pain journey started with my first migraine in 1991 In 1994 I developed Hashimoto's as my first autoimmune disease. I've been battling Diabetes T1.5 since 2012 and Lupus started around the same time but I wasn't diagnosed until 2014. I've lost a lot due to my illnesses including my coveted career. I've started a facebook group for Lupus support in the Windsor-Essex area with the intent to get a true support group in our area. I couldn't do anything without my family, my pupalups and even more so my online friends.
Kristin and I have chatted back/forth on Twitter for several years prior to 2018, but in the past 6 months I feel that she has really become a seasoned and flourishing advocate. It was such a joy to meet her at HealtheVoices '18 and I love keeping in touch with such an incredible woman! Congrats on your nominations, Kristin! You deserve them ALL! — Kenzie
