My Story 0 Appreciate this

Hello, my boyfriend and I are developing a community project for folks who have recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Two years ago, we began our own journey with autoimmune when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. For us, it was a panic filled, dark time where our lives were turned upside down and the future looked bleak. Two years later, after a lot of hard work and major lifestyle changes, we are back on firm ground. Our project will provide hope, inspiration, and tangible 'on the ground' steps to lift you out of the downward spiral and give you tools to get your life back. We will be filming interviews with leaders in the online autoimmune community who have made radical transformations in their lives and regained their health while living with an autoimmune condition. We hope to provide the kind of inspiration and hope that we wished we would have had during our dark time. If you have recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and are still reeling, we would like to interview you to better understand what kind of support and information would have the biggest impact for you and your family right now. We understand what it is like to go through this process. By having a conversation with you about where you are at and what you are going through, we hope to be better prepared in our interviews with these leaders, ask questions that nobody asks, and aggregate these results based practices in one free online location. Please send me a note if you are interested in helping us with this project. We will schedule a short 15-30 minute conversation with you over the phone, ask you questions about where you are at with your diagnosis, what steps you are taking in your life right now, and what challenges you currently experience. All participants will remain anonymous. Finally, if this doesn't relate to you but to someone in your life, please forward this. I look forward to hearing from you!
