Dysautonomia, or autonomic dysfunction, is a condition which affects the proper function of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). This affects the heart, bladder, intestines, sweat glands, pupils and blood vessels.
We aim to share our stories with hospitals, health care offices, families, and friends. Our goal is to find caregivers and individuals who go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. We are here to inspire, advocate, be the example, pave the way, and cast a light into the vast darkness that comes with a chronic illness like dysautonomia. If we reach just one person, so they do not struggle for years to receive a diagnosis and proper treatment, then we have achieved our goal. We will work tirelessly until every parish, hospital, school, and community in Louisiana have been touched by our group.
