I want to break the stigmas associated...

Karen Bastille Health Maven

Ellington, Connecticut
I am a 55 year old woman living a life that includes COPD / emphysema. While my diagnosis four years ago did change some things about me - I retired from teaching to avoid colds and flu, for example - it did not change who I am. I am an active, productive and happy woman - I write, I engage in several (too many?) hobbies, I care for my granddaughter while her mother works. I believe in the title...

Somewhere around November 18th or 19th of 2007, I started feeling what I thought were Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my right hand. The symptoms included: tingling of my fingers, numbness, and I was having trouble typing. I went out and bought wrist guards, and things designed to help CT patients. The symptoms continued for about two weeks and I promised I?d visit the doctor after Thanksgiving....

Somewhere, Tennessee
The bipolar disorder diagnosis at the age of 23 was a relief to know I was not simply a bad person and there was a reason for the way I have felt. Yet I have been struggling to cope and understand this disorder... what does it mean? How do the brain imbalances affect my behavior and moods? Why do I rapid cycle? Why do I get obsessive thoughts? Is there a link between mania and memory? Is there...

Granbury, Texas
I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...

Portland, Oregon
In early 2005, I was 28 years old and just beginning to break into a career as an opera singer. I had received contracts for three main stage productions, a culmination of ten years of work toward my goal of making opera my life's work. I was at a turning point; these performances could make or break my budding career. One morning in March of that year, I woke, stood up, and passed out,...

I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury with skull fracture. I remember waking up in the hospital. Because of the premature birth...
