The Full Story
The first time I heard about TED Disease,
It was to late for me
After so many decades of socio-medical challenges,
I sometimes still don't know how things could have been differently for me
Surely, not feeling isolated or outcasted would have made a difference
not to mention, the heavy load of social stigma attached to
INVISIBLE, CHRONIC and MENTAL STATED DISEASEs
A friend recently asked me what I now wanted from Life?
It took me months to answer...
Struggle can become a habit
I can say that now I deserve to be healthy, LOved and Happy
struggling no more...
This image says so much about my journey to even think that TEDGALA is more than possible, IT IS by essence of all our stories, the story of adversity, resilience and sharing experiences and information
Whoever said that Knowledge is POWER, may have forgotten to mention that in cases like ThyroidEye Disease, KNOWLEDGE could mean life or death !
A high Profile GALA to raise awareness about the devastating consequences of #Thyroid.Eye.Disease and Funds for UK charities (for start), @tedgala now @tedgala.official brings together a vast array of professionals, creatives artists and sponsors ready to make a difference in the lives of millions suffering patients and their friends & families
Not understanding what your loved ones are suffering from is really something to experience.
