Hi there! My name is Maria. I am recovering from lost identity syndrome (it’s a thing!). I have never felt comfortable in my own skin. At a young age, I began comparing myself and my life with others. I wasn’t skinny enough, pretty enough, brave enough, exciting enough, keep going and just fill in the blank. Battling several difficulties including, Graves disease turned Hashimoto’s disease, infertility, miscarriage, failed adoption, secondary infertility, Endometriosis, failed uterine ablation resulting in partial hysterectomy, had me feeling more lost than ever before.
I was adopted as an infant. I felt like I never knew who I was to begin with. Then, going through everything I went through compounded it even more and left me broken and bruised. In 2018, I decided to embark on a journey to find myself. I wasn’t pretending anymore. I wasn’t going to be the me that everyone expected me to be, but the real me that I was created to be. Instead of denial, I started embracing all my circumstances and realities.
I realized that life is hard, but I am an overcomer and so are you! I finally found my story. I want to share it with you and I would love to hear your story as well.
Everyone has a story worth sharing!
