I was diagnosed in May 2008 after experiencing symptoms for over a year. I am a licensed pharmacy technician and worked for a non-profit humanitarian organization. I have the support of my husband Jacob as well as my family. I have learned more about life and myself through my diagnosis than any textbook could provide.
