Hi I'm Sera!
Glad we are coming across each other in the midst of our journeys!
17 years ago, I was suffering from bulimia. It feels strange telling you this, especially as most of the people in my life don’t know anything about this.
Even during my recovery, only a few loved ones knew what was going on. But they did their best to support me. I was very ashamed about my eating disorder, so I wanted to keep it to myself as much as I could. It was very tough to recover from bulimia but eventually I got my life back.
But 7 years ago I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. I began learning how to live with a chronic disease, but it remained hard to explain to people what was going on with me. Why I wasn’t drinking alcohol, why I was getting tired easily, why steroids was making my face bloated.
Some people even suggested to not share that with people as they could think that my hepatitis might be contagious!
And here I am today, with a tumour in my jaw and waiting for my surgery.
Another journey is waiting for me, but this time I don’t want to do it all by myself. I want to:
- Create awareness
- Spread kindness
- Get support from people who are on a similar recovery journey
So Pink Robin Design was born!
That’s my little story! I wanted to share it with you so thanks for reading this far.
But actually, I want to hear from you! What is your story? What are / were your struggles in your recovery journey?
