“I realized that we are slowly starting to lose the art of communication and its creating a deep loneliness within us. remember the good old times of pagers and flip phones. a device to call people without the constant pressure to answer emails, texts and many hours of scrolling through social media until your eyes hurt and often left uninspired.”

Many nights I wished to die, and prayed I would just be free of the pain. If it weren’t for my children, I don’t think I would be here today.”
The momma of Gigi and Bella Hadid then famous that anybody residing with Lyme illness tends to endure in silence:
“Like with many chronic diseases and mental health issues, the unfortunate truth is that you appear to be healthy on the outside, which is difficult for people to reconcile.

As the saying goes: you don’t truly get it until you get it.”
