Good Afternoon! Why Triumphant Wings you ask? First a little about Who I am. My name is D. Nicole Davis. My friends and family call me Nicole or Nikki. I was named after my grandmother, so from an early age I went by my middle name. I am 30 years old, and have been married to my husband, Claude, for almost 5 years. We have been together for 10 years. I will be the main writer on this blog, but occasionally I may share writings, pictures, and other material from my loved ones, as they are all part of this strange journey we have found ourselves on.
Life is funny that way. You start out one day and it seems like any other day, and by the end of it your life is forever changed. This is what happened to me on July 23, 2013. I’ll tell you this story later on, but it is a date that will forever stand as a day that my life changed.
I started Triumphant Wings simply because I felt the call to share my story about my life with Chronic Illnesses. It has been a scary and confusing journey at times, and there have been times I have felt like I was failing. Other times, I feel like I have been put on this journey for a reason. That reason is simply, so I can help others on a similar journey.
In November of 2013 I was diagnosed with Antiphospholipid Syndrome, an autoimmune condition that causes blood clots, chronic migraines, miscarriages. In fact the start of my APS journey was a miscarriage on May 29, 2013, but I will get to that in another post.
In March of 2014 I was diagnosed with Lupus, even with no positive lab work. This diagnosis was based on my APS diagnosis, my symptoms, and my family history.
I also have a few other chronic conditions that tag along with these conditions migraines, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
This blog will cover my journey with both illnesses, life, and everything in between. I hope by sharing my story I can help others live on their own triumphant wings.
I want to hear from my followers, so please leave me comments and connect with me!
