"WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS?"

Sue's early involvement with Arthritis research has led to a path of self-awareness and acceptance.  Her work with various arthritis doctors, pharmaceutical companies and the FDA has provided a wealth of personal knowledge about the challenges and successes of dealing with a potentially debilitating disease.  Sue works with others who struggle with serious health issues including Arthritis, Crohn's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, and Lupus.

While working one-on-one with others who suffer from health related issues, Sue explores the following questions:

  • Why me?
  • Why doesn't anyone understand how I'm feeling?
  • Why does everyone think that this is all in my head?
  • What do I have to do to get doctors to listen to me?
  • Why do I feel so depressed and frustrated?
  • How am I ever going to function with all the fatigue and pain?
  • What do I tell my friends and family about my illness?
  • What do I tell people at work who sometimes see me struggling?
  • What do I do if my job is just too much for me to handle right now?
  • Why am I not feeling loving and intimate with my partner?

    If you've been asking yourself these questions, you are absolutely not alone.  Millions of people struggle every day with the pain, frustration, isolation, and sadness of living with a potentially debilitating illness.  One of the most important ways to feel better is to talk to someone who understands and cares about what you are experiencing.  This could be a friend, family member, co-worker, or a counselor.  Whatever you do, don't isolate yourself especially when you are feeling down.  You can find the strength to deal with the illness and potentially make peace with it during the process!!
