“When the person you love suffers from multiple chronic and autoimmune diseases/illnesses, life can feel like a prison for both of you. It’s as if a third party is stealing from you what others take for granted without a second thought: a dance, a walk, a kiss, a smile, a trip somewhere nice, dreams, goals, plans, happiness. However, when you finally get that brief moment of joy or peace it’s like starving and getting a bite of your favorite meal when dirt would have done just fine. This fight has made us stronger than anyone could ever know, and our finite time ever more valuable to ourselves.
All we want is to be free from this rat race, to live the way we want to, to do what we want to do, in a way that cannot and will never produce a victim. It’s already hard enough that we are limited in the ways that we are. But when the government comes in and makes what’s possible illegal, we have no choice but to fight harder, inward and outward. That’s why we’re seeking alternative means of healing and survival.
Our hope is to spread awareness about chronic illnesses and the struggles faced by those who live with them. It’s important for others to understand the reality of living with these conditions, and the impact it has on individuals and their loved ones. We also strive to promote a system that supports individuals in seeking their own path to healing and happiness, free from unnecessary government intervention. Our ultimate goal is to create a place where everyone has the freedom to choose what’s best for them, without fear of persecution or harm.”
