“When I was confronted with the reality that my health condition had led me to develop imposter syndrome, it was a wake-up call. I realized that by not acknowledging my own struggles and challenges, I was doing myself a disservice and risking my life in the process. The burden of feeling like a fraud in my own disease had taken a toll on my physical and mental health, leading to more diagnoses and a downward spiral. But with this newfound understanding, I was able to turn my life around. I made it my mission to understand the root causes of my imposter syndrome and overcome it, not just for myself but for all those who might be struggling with similar challenges. And in doing so, I discovered a new level of strength and resilience that I never knew I had.”
