Ana Lucia: Esclerosis Sistemica Difusa


Yellow Canna by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist Hola, me llamo Ana Lucía, tengo 20 años y me diagnosticaron esclerosis sistemica difusa hace un año y medio.

Estoy en tratamiento de corticoides. y ciclofosfamida, llevo un año y medio en hospitales. He tenido que ingresar todos los meses para ponerme tratamiento intravenoso.

Gracias a Dios ya está todo mejor, todo controlado. A lo mejor si Dios quiere a finales de año me quitan los goteros pero tendré que seguir con las pastillas.

Pero bueno quiero decirle a todo el mundo que tenga algo parecido que no se dejen vencer que sigan adelante que la vida es muy bonita. Gracias por escucharme.
