When your body becomes your enemy.
Autoimmune Disease: "Any of a large group of diseases characterized by abnormal functioning of the immune system that causes your immune system to produce antibodies against your own tissue."
""We have learned that trauma is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain, and body. This imprint has ongoing consequences for how the human organism manages to survive in the present. Trauma results in a fundamental reorganization o the way mind and brain manage perceptions. It changes not only how we think and what we think about, but also our very capacity to think." -Bessel A. Van Der Kolk, The Body Keeps Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
The evidence of the link between autoimmune disease and trauma is substantial. Trauma brings harm to all levels of our being-body, mind, soul and spirit. The good news is there is hope and healing.
Once you are ready to face and deal with the trauma that you have shoved deep down inside and hope to forget and move on, you are ready to begin the healing process.

I have by God's mercy, kindness and love been able to be completely healed from Hypothyroidism. It was sever for 12 years of my life. I was barely functioning and had many painful debilitating symptoms. I will at some point post a video sharing my story.
My prayer for you:
Please bring your kindness and love and healing hands to this dear reader. Please help her to love herself enough to face her pain and trauma so she doesn't have to continue living in so much pain; both physically and emotionally. Please lead and guide her on the next step she needs to take to find freedom. Amen
