What do you do and why do you do it? It all started one spring afternoon in 2002 while riding a theme park rollercoaster ride my life changed as I knew it. I had received whiplash which spiraled my health into a downward motion without any feeling of control. There were days when my legs would give out on me and didn’t know if I could even get out of bed. A common diagnosis of fibromyalgia was what every physician I had encountered had given me for over a decade, but I hadn’t given up hope that there was more going on with my health that just had not been found yet. In 2017, I finally had some answers! I had a gut feeling that there was more and I was right. This journey of being my own advocate and
