Hi there! My name is Jaime. I am a nutritionist and public health practitioner. I have two children, girls currently 7 and 5 years old. They are my joy! and the reason I wake everyday and fight. I decided to start this blog as moral, emotional and general support for myself and other people who battle chronic pain and diseases everyday. One can feel pretty lonely in the world of chronic diseases because noone really understands how you feel, apart from those who live your circumstances. So I thought that it would be great to have a forum that can help me reach others who feel lonely like me, and maybe we can keep each other company on this lonely journey.
I’ve been living with Behcets disease since I was 4 years old. At 33 years old (early this year – 2018) – is when I finally got diagnosed and put under treatment which has greatly improved my quality of life. Especially time with my children as I’m not in as much pain as I used to be in, and I can now play with them as a mother should.
It has been a long Road to Diagnosis. This blog contains my story and experiences about living with Behcet’ disease.
