Hi I’m Jenny! 👋🏻 I’m 24 years old and I’m ready to share my story- for real. A year ago, I was vigorously blogging and speaking about my journey to find answers about healing my SIBO/IBS because I was 100% confident that I would beat whatever was plaguing my body. For months, I was strong. And I mean... strong as hell. I listened to every doctor to perfection, followed every diet to a T. I never missed a beat. And YET... every. single. day. I woke up with pain, I couldn't eat ANY food properly, and the mental burden of all of it got so heavy I wanted to give up.
So I stopped blogging and I threw myself into distractions. I stopped being honest to my family, my doctors, and my friends about how I was feeling. I did not get "better," In fact, I was getting extremely worse.
I've spent the last few months doing a whopping amount of testing and put my body/mind through the wringer trying to get back to equilibrium. After 11 years of blind hope that one day I'll feel normal when I wake up in the morning.. I FINALLY received a diagnosis.
After an MRI and an evaluation with a specialist, they found I have an extremely severe case of Pelvic Floor Dyssynergia & Dysfunction. Low story short... my body has been cutting off it's own circulation for years.
On top of my array of stomach problems: i am experiencing really painful sex, no periods, TMJ, back/hip aches, legs falling asleep, I am CONSTANTLY cold, and I’m just chronically inflamed and in general pain all the time. I honestly thought I was going CRAZY but now... to have a confirmation and answer for everything I’ve been experiencing....I KNOW I can heal and change my life forever.
So here is the first post of my journey. One that I am 1000% committed too. There will be life changes. Big ones. Ones that I need to be ready for. And I am. I’ve realized that I CANT life like this anymore. Chronic pain is ruining my life but now, I’m taking my life back. I’m spending this Sunday enjoying life. I’m going to eat what I want and do what I want entirely.. with no anxiety, stress or anything else that doesn’t serve me. I invite any new friends/supporters to join me on this ride because IDK WHAT IM DOINGGGG!
