As you can well imagine, The Skin I’m In series has taken a life of its own, so I thought I would compile all of the posts I have written so far. A few of them were not exactly part of the series but they are related.
When I started writing these posts, I had no idea how many women have been affected by hormone imbalance, including conditions like PCOS, and dealing with skin and digestive issues in general. What I have been finding more and more as time goes on, is the growing relation in hormone and digestive conditions specifically affecting those who have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. This concerns me a great deal and should be talked about more.
For a long time I didn’t want to share my story; it was too painful, and I didn’t feel that I knew enough to help others in their journey. I still don’t. There is so much to learn and no two individuals are the same which means no regime or approach is the same. I try not to give too much specific advice for that reason. What I have realized is that those who are struggling need a voice, they need someone to relate to, that have been where they are. That is what I needed and still do! If I can give a glimpse of hope, or some help to just one person then I feel that it has all been worth it. Sharing something so personal is not easy to do publicly, I assure you. But I do feel that I have already accomplished what I set out to do with this series. For that, and for each one of you, I am truly, and utterly grateful.
Stay strong, and keep going. We’re all in this together.
