However, there will also be moments when you cannot believe how much better you feel.
When you are out enjoying life, and you feel so well you forgot you have an autoimmune disease.
Feeling well is worth every effort.
Choose to eat well and live well for your family, for your loved ones, but most of all, for yourself.
You are worth it.
