This Body

This body. 

Handstand 1

First seizure at 11 months old.

Bloody noses, ear infections, psoriasis

Heart murmurs.

Shingles at 7

and 12…14…15

Hyperactive thyroid diagnosed at 17.

Kidney disease diagnosed at 18, with total renal failure.Handstand 2

Ruptured intestine at 19.

Years of illness, followed by years of determined lifestyle change.

After my last labs, my doctor finally said,

“Everything is normal. There is nothing wrong with you.”

Take care of your body.

Handstand 3

It’s the only one you’ve got. 

And it’s all under your control.
