I am a 49 year old wife, mother, and grandma. I was born a sick child leaving the medical field to believe I would not live past the age of 6. One Army doctor turned that around & I am still standing. In addition to other health issues I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, CFS, and IBS. Looking back. I realize my symptoms began when I was 21. Years ago I was blessed with the position of Education Director for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, for North Dakota. I have been a child, a special needs, and a mental health advocate since I was a kid. It is my goal to support and uplift chronic pain survivors, give them hope, let them know they aren't alone, and to push for a cure.
I’m a Patient Leader
