I FULLY UNDERSTAND
THE MANY CHALLENGES
OF LIFE WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS
My name is Trish Robichaud and I am a Disability Awareness Coach, Maximum Life & Healthy Business Coach.
Thanks for dropping by today. I’m so glad you did because I have good news for you… just because you’re confronted with those seemingly insurmountable challenges… that doesn’t mean you have to live an unfulfilled life. You can still achieve some of the dreams you once had or enjoy life to a fuller degree than you are experiencing today.
Why can I say that? Let me explain…
You see, I've lived through many years of chronic illness. On November 3rd, 1993, one of the most pivotal moments in my life occurred. That was the day that
I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH
At the time, I was blind in my left eye; the pain was unbearable. I had no balance, as well as a slew of other symptoms that included numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. I was only 30 years old! It felt like that doctor had just punched me in the gut!
The whole experience felt as if I was in a deep sleep, having a terrible dream. When I finally “woke up,” a major case of depression took over. All the while, I was still working.
My employer didn't believe me all those months I’d been sick while waiting for a diagnosis. Once I had one, they didn’t want to hear about it. I was depressed and barely functioning but I’m a fighter at heart so I filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission.
For 3 months after my diagnosis I cried myself to work every day. They did everything they could to force me to quit. The stress was unbearable but I knew that I had to stick it out to strengthen my Human Rights Complaint. Finally, they fired me.
I LOST MY JOB AND MY
LIFE'S CAREER AS A RESULT
I went home and completely collapsed and withdrew into depression for months after that. The physical and emotional pain was shadowed only by the grief over the loss of my career and the fear of what the future might hold for a woman with a disability.
As you can probably guess, those feelings came and went – in my case for many years. Until one day, I was fed up with the reactive ups and downs of the roller-coaster life with my illness.
So, I finally decided it was time to make some healthier lifestyle choices and become proactive with my health in an effort to make the most of my life.
I GOT SICK OF THE DEPRESSION
FEELINGS OF POWERLESSNESS
