First (left) picture: eight months before my diagnosis. This was on a good day. You can tell because I’m actually off the couch/bed and out of the house.
Second (right) picture: three years after learning about my food allergies.
I’d lost 75 pounds, my hair had grown back in (I’d lost huge clumps of it), my lungs had dried out, I was sleeping well again at last, and I felt wonderful, for the first time in 15 years!
(Need I say more?)
