Alisha grew up in Liverpool and recalls being a very free-spirited kid. As she got older, she had planned to go off to university, but life had other things in mind. After taking a family trip, she came back with glandular fever. This viral infection attacked her immunes system, but she recalls just trying to push through; she had always been so active and didn’t want to stop now. Unfortunately, pushing her body had adverse effects than she’d hoped and it only made things worse. It wasn’t until this past year that Alisha truly learned the importance of listening to her body. She has realized that your longest and greatest relationship is with yourself and once we can find security in ourselves, life may just become a little bit easier.
