Hi, I’m Katie, Occupational Therapist and chronic illness survivor. For me, chronic illness has not only been a physical attack, but a battle over the mind and spirit. It took great endurance and strength to continue, and to not let it steal my joy or purpose.
My hope is that my story will serve as a testimony to the healing power of God. No matter how bleak your situation may be, we always have hope, and change is possible. I have now been in remission for a year from fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome (no medication and no symptoms).
I share what I have learned, what has helped me, and continues to help me heal from several autoimmune illnesses (my antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is gone!) and a metabolic syndrome (mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 11). I also had several thyroid nodules (one was a solid 9mm) that completely vanished.
The work of healing is never done. I need healing daily, and renewal through my faith and God’s word.
Hope is not lost. You have the power to make changes to your health. Despite what you have been told, you can heal. I am not unique or special in this way.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
-Proverbs 3: 5-6
