We asked Canadian Writer and YMC Member Paula Schuck to share what makes her an unstoppable mom. Read Paula's story...
I had a weird relationship with body image as a tween and teen. When I was 12, I started getting sick and eventually at 14 I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. Crohn’s is a digestive disorder thought to be an autoimmune disorder too. I lost a lot of weight because I didn’t absorb a lot of the nutrition I was taking in. I was very often too skinny and I remember people questioning why I was so skinny. People didn’t understand Crohn’s well at all 20 years ago.
When I wasn’t sick, I had body image issues about being fat, which was absurd because I have never ever been overweight.
