Update 10 months post op~ If I have been able to save 1 persons life by sharing my story then I am blessed~!~
In July/August I was also diagnosed with Lupus in addition to the Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Raynards Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Silicone Sickness (the shell of all implants are made from silicone, even though filled with saline).
I am the 1st generation in my family for all of these illnesses~
I have been told that several friends who shared my story with their friends, family and/or people who know me and saw my mammograms and witnessed how sick I became to the point I almost lost my life; well, they have either taken their implants out, replaced them because it had been longer than 10 years or decided not to get them at all.
I believe I am alive to spread the word not only about this but how the government system fails those who need them when this type of event comes. I am still waiting to get disability since I am unable to work with how often I flare up with my autoimmune diseases; when 1 flares, they all flare~but, I do try to act normal even though my body is screaming on the inside. (People who suffer from Autoimmune Diseases, may look normal on the outside; so do not judge what you do not know)~!~
Please feel free to keep sharing my story, maybe it can go viral to save a life~
