So much of your story is painfully relatable. Interestingly, individuals of Asian heritage who immigrate to America end up exhibiting the same risk of chronic diseases as the general American population upon settling down in the United States, suggesting that chronic diseases may largely be environmentally driven. Indeed, most gut microbial diversity is lost within a few months.

Managing multiple co-morbidities really is a full-time job with no days off. Coming to terms with loss of autonomy is an especially painful pill to swallow. Thank you for sharing your story so vulnerably.
