How did you make this work:
My ongoing series 'Mind Body' is inspired by my healing journey the last 7 years. I was misdiagnosed by my doctor at age 5 and my skin became addicted to and damaged by steroid creams for 21 years. During recovery and withdrawal, I also discovered I have CPTSD from childhood trauma and my healing with this began too. My hope is to help others heal as well by being vulnerable with my own journey.
