The Road to Diagnosis Pt. 1 - CHAMP1
Fifteen. My parents were married on the 15th of the month, I was born on the 15th of the month, and it’s no secret that taxes are due on the 15th of every April. I got my first cell phone and had my first boyfriend when I was fifteen years old. I’ve lost and gained the same fifteen pounds more than once over the years and I’ve easily been to Destin, Florida fifteen times, probably more. I’ve been out of high school for almost fifteen years (excuse me, what?!). As I started composing this first post in my head, I’ve wracked my brain for any time in my life that that number has been as defining or significant as the last fifteen months have been and, as you can see from my measly list above, I didn’t have much luck. The truth is, nothing has tested me, taught me, stretched, or grown me more than the journey that began on March 15th, 2019.
