Meet the Disabled Diva



Single Mom of Two 

After years of furthering my education and career, with two young children, I developed debilitating symptoms.  

Yoga Girl 

I practice yoga and became a certified Yoga Teacher in order to help me cope with chronic illness.

Disabled Diva

I focus my attention on what I can control in  life and find peace through meditation, yoga, nutrition, Pilates, aromatherapy, Bach Flowers, reading and more.


BACKGROUND

The Disabled Diva brings wisdom through experience and has spent many years dealing with a multitude of health challenges.  She has been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME ( a Neruo-Immune Disease), Chronic Viral Infections ( Parvo Virus, EpsteinBarr Virus, Coxasackie Virus, HHV6 Virus, Cytomegalvirus), Hashimoto's Thyroditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Pernicious Anemia, the MTHFR gene mutation, Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), Ankylosing Spondylitis and Scoliosis.

For many years, she was what many would consider to be an overachiever.  A classical musician since the age of 9, she spent her youth competing for seats with prestigious youth orchestras. Her hard work earned her music scholarship to the University of Miami where she had a dual majored in Music and Business, graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree.  She continued on at the University of Miami, where she received her Master of Business Administration degree, with a specialization in Finance. 

Many years into her career, marriage, and with two young children, she started having unexplained debilitating symptoms. 

This is when the chronic illness journey began.  Many months were spent going to doctors with varying specialties to try to find an explanation for her sudden onset of symptoms.  Lucky enough to have met caring doctors who listened to her concerns, she was able to receive a series of diagnosis by the collaborations between her Rheumatologist and Neuro-Immunologist.  

Her doctors, although caring, did not have a lot to offer by way of a cure.  The treatment focus was on managing symptoms and achieving a quality of life.  Not content to accept that there was no real treatment option, she set off to find her own way of healing.  Many important people came into her life to help her on her journey in illness and learning to cope. 

A yoga practitioner for many years, she could no longer practice the aggressive yoga she was used to.  She sought out a teacher for a new type of yoga and found Gentle Therapeutics Yoga.  She studied one on one with her teacher, in the ancient yogi tradition, and received her 500 hour certification.  Her yoga training has been invaluable to her in managing her own health as well as emotional and spiritual well-being.  She also found an amazingly gifted mental health counselor with an inclination for integrating spiritual concepts with modern psychology.  She also received help from an acupuncturist, a meditation coach, a nutrition coach, a functional medicine professional and many more wonderful people.

Today she lives on her own with her 2 children in a life that has been modified to what she calls her “New Normal”.   She is blessed to have the help of her mother, an oncology nutritionist, as her care taker.   Her chronic illnesses still limit her ability to do much of what she did prior to becoming sick, but her emotional and spiritual well- being have blossomed.  She has focused her attention on what she can control in her life and finds peace through meditation, yoga, nutritious eating, Pilates, aromatherapy, juicing, Bach Flowers, reading and much more.  Her hope is that she can impart some of what she has learned through her journey to serving others.
