‘I woke up feeling ‘different.’ It didn’t make sense. I sat shaking with a pregnancy test in my hands. Two pink lines.’: Woman suffering from ‘stomach paralysis’ meets new love, has ‘miracle’ baby

“He was just gone. I came home one night to the apartment my boyfriend and I shared to find everything was missing. He terminated our lease and emptied our joint bank account. I had less than a month to find a new place to live, no savings, and I was having surgery in a week. I didn’t think I could go on without him.”

‘I began purchasing baby formula for myself. ‘How could this have happened?’ I felt my boyfriend distancing himself out of fear.’: Young woman diagnosed with rare Elher’s Danlos Syndrome

“I was literally watching myself decay. I couldn’t stand up to get a glass of water without blacking out. I felt judgement in every public restroom I threw up in. My boyfriend of 3 years, the man I planned to marry, broke up with me. I was ‘too sick.’ It all happened so quickly. I went from helping children get off of feeding tubes, to needing one myself. I spent the majority of my hospital admission sobbing, grieving the life I’d walked away from.”
