My story

[p]A short 6 weeks to train, one may say it’s madness. [/p][p]I think it’s quite fitting to my Addison’s journey! [/p][p]I run today to create awareness and to prove anything is possible. I run to raise money for a wonderful and supportive group - ADSHG. [/p][p]Being diagnosed in lockdown with such a rare disease, I have had the help group to thank. [/p][p]Leading up to my diagnosis in September 2020. I was giving up! [/p][p]I was fighting so hard to be heard by the doctors but no one was listening. [/p][p]My life became restricted to my bed, going to the bathroom felt like a marathon. I ended up in A&E only to be sent home and told to take it easy! [/p][p]I had every scan and blood test possible. But nothing was showing up. I was vomiting most mornings and had excruciating stomach pain. [/p][p]I finally got myself seen by an amazing professor of endocrinology. He took one look at me and knew straight away I had Addison’s. [/p][p]Us addisonians have a very distinctive bronze skin and following a diagnostic test to confirm, I started my Addison’s journey. [/p][p]I was scared and confused after being told. Taking tablets for the rest of my life to keep me alive felt very surreal. Carrying an emergency injection kit and ensuring friends and family know what to look out for has become my new normal. [/p][p]But I am determined to live a healthy long life. [/p][p]Thank you for supporting me. [/p]
