10 years ago I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Very rarely do I speak about my disease publicly.
Today was different. My strength was tested on a whole new level. I had an arthroscopic synovectomy on my left knee. I faced my fear head on and came out feeling more confident and beyond proud of myself for going through with it. The amount of love and support I have in my life is absolutely overwhelming in the best way. I can’t begin to tell you all how grateful I am for each and every single one of you.
Thank you to the love of my life @greywattz for always being there for me, my family for EVERYTHING, to my surgeon Dr. Mark Figgie for being a complete genius, to the entire team at @hspecialsurgery, and to my #teambfa + partners for loving me so damn much.
I’m at @publichotels till Tuesday while I get back on my feet. @stevenrojas thank you for EVERYTHING! I love you so much!
Ps. The first pic was of the sunrise from my hospital room this morning
