My Health. My Blog.

Welcome to my story.

​It starts with a healthy, independent, capable young woman. I had just graduated nursing school, officially become a registered nurse, and started my dream job.

​A month later, I was a sick, dependent shell of a person. I had daily seizures and soon lost my ability to walk and talk... I was a slave to my own inflamed brain.

Today, I am a healing, strong, and capable young woman with a promising life ahead of me. I am one of the lucky ones who found a specialist and received the treatment I needed.

I started this blog to shine light on my illness: a rare neuroendocrine disorder called Hashimoto's Encephalitis (HE), or steroid-responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT)

​Hashimoto’s Encephalitis is hard to spot, hard to diagnose, and therefore hard to treat. Spreading awareness is the only way to restore the lives of those living without a diagnosis today.
