Who Is Princess Affliction?

So, technically I’m not a legit princess… Sorry for the epic plot twist there. But I am a princess in my own eyes. I’m a princess with my own kingdom, fighting my own battles, relaxing on my own throne… Or more like my bed. I believe anyone¬†can be a princess or even prince for that matter! All it takes to be a princess is kindness, strength, and love. It may sound cliche but it’s so true! You don’t need a billion crowns, elegant ballgowns, extravagant parties, a throne, or an amazing castle to be a princess! You can rule your own kingdom, in your own way. Nobody can stop you from being the strong, beautiful princess (or prince!) that you are.

I may be an ordinary girl, but I am a girl that is a princess not just through my eyes, but through God’s eyes. Throughout the many years of my life, I have grown and become strong because I love God and I know through all these trials life gives, God will always be my shield and my sword because of his never ending love. A little info about me: I’m a girl conquering a tough battle. I have been fighting this battle for quite some time, I have Lymes Dissease. I was diagnosed only a month ago, after a year and a half of diahiblitating migranes and endless doctors thinking I just needed a pschytrist. I have learned that I have had this dissease for quite some time, maybe since I was 5 years old. I am now 16 years old. My migraines started when I was 8 years old, after the traumatic death of a loved one. Since then, it’s all been one battle of ups and downs. I was diagnosed with CRPS, a condition that makes an injury more painful than it needs to be, and takes longer to heal, when I was 9 years old. It took almost 2 years to get back to the energetic girl I was. It wasn’t until I was 15 that the CRPS came back when I sustained a hip injury. Once again, it took almost a year to heal and live pain free. Then the migraines became worse, where I would only have a couple of bad migraines a year, it became a couple of bad migraines a week, landing me in the ER multiple times in a week. Then the day of December 3rd came and a migraine that hasn’t left began. Then began the endless¬†Childrens hospital visits, many trips to the pediatrition, and so many blood tests that I lost count. No doctors could diagnose what I had, so naturally they assumed that I just needed a physiatrist. So I took their word that that was what I needed and I began seeing a counselor for a while, but something kept telling me more was going on inside my body. My mother and her crazy cool mom intuition thought the same thing, so we sent in a hair sample to be tested for lymes along with other co-infections I may have. It was official, I have five different types of Lymes disease, all wreaking havoc within my body. My family and I live in Colorado, I was born and raised here. Nobody expects getting Lymes Disease unless you live in the east. Many cases of Lymes disease goes undiagnosed, as it can be read as a false negative with blood tests. But the hard truth of the matter is that Lymes disease is out there and it doesn’t just occur in the east. Now if you have read this far, I applaude and thank you for getting to know my story, for I believe everyone’s fight- not just my own fight-whether it be Lyme’s disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, or anything anybody faces, is a fight that should be recognized and applauded for. Fighting against any illness isn’t easy, and so I would like to praise all of you who go through tough battles. I know all of you out there are princesses and prince’s with astounding strength. Keep being strong, God gives his hardest battles to his strongest princesses and prince’s. Thank you for reading my story, as I travel this long road of healing I hope you will continue to be a fan of my blog and even share your own story! You are a strong warrior princess/ prince, and don’t let anyone tell you other wise! Got it?!

Love,

Princess Affliction
