Whether you landed here because you’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, you’re struggling with an inflammatory condition for quite some years now, or you simply want to find your purpose in life, - you’ve come to the right place.
I’m Silvia Petrozza, I have been living with Scleroderma for the past 12 years, and I am fulfilling my dream of helping others living with autoimmune diseases find their purpose in life. But, let me first share with you how it all started…
HOW IT ALL STARTED I was diagnosed with Systemic Scleroderma at 24 years old, shortly after giving birth to my first child. At that time, I didn’t know what scleroderma was, nor how the diagnosis would change my life once and for all. The first years were very difficult – physically and emotionally. My days were filled with disheartening doctor visits, distressing chronic pain, pain medications, and many unanswered questions. I was not the person I wanted to be, and even worse, I was not the mom my kids wanted me to be. I’ve spent several years of my life trapped in my own skin until I could finally accept my new normal and stop allowing this disease to own me. It wasn’t until 3 years ago when I actually hit rock bottom, and I was faced with a defining moment of whether or not I wanted to live or die. I chose life over death, and I started working on finding my purpose in life. And I did. I became an advocate not only for myself, but also for others living with autoimmune diseases. Today, 12 years later, I am a certified life coach and I dream of helping people embrace their new normal, and finding their own purpose; Just like I did.
MY MISSION I truly believe that healing starts from within. It starts with accepting your situation, respecting your body, and embracing your new normal. The day I realized this, was the day I became aligned with my true purpose in life - help others take control of their life and have fun along the way. Let me show you how.
