I KNEW my auto-immune illness was due to a traumatic incident in my child that caused me to feel like it would be better to be good.  Holding things inside and acting and speaking the way I really felt was absolutely out of the question.  No one told me this, it’s just what a 10-year-old little girl did to protect herself.  I’m paying the price for it now with my health.  Now I know I can overcome this.
