Hey there friends! My name is Keri-lee Griffiths and I’m a recovering human being.
I was diagnosed with a chronic, life-threatening, illness at three years old. I’ve had three kidney transplants. I’ve been clinically dead multiple times. I’ve had more surgeries than I can count but I’m still here.
Somehow, for some reason, I’m still alive.
People have asked me about what I’ve been through but I’ve always shook my head and changed the subject. It’s not something I’ve wanted to face or relive. Talking about it made it seem more real or maybe I was just too tired of the pain to talk about it. I’ve spent many years running from my life but it’s time to stop and face it.
So here I go. Opening up about what it’s like to live with a chronic illness and maybe a few things I’ve learned along the way.
Please be good to yourself and each other.
