awareness

15 Years Without a Shower

I filmed this 15 Years Without a Shower - Story Time video to shed light on the existence of medical malodor disorder condition. And also to try to raise awareness of isolating and ostracizing rare diseases such as trimethylaminuria malodor condition ( also known as tmau). My goal is that with enough awareness, creating a tmau cure might be put into motion, allowing people who have suffered in silence for untold years to finally have a chance at normal lives.

My sensitivity became my strength, and my asset

In my late teens and early 20s, I did everything to keep up with the fast-paced world I was living in – I worked as a server, went to college full time, and spent every other waking moment socializing with friends, being there for my family, and spending time with my boyfriend at the time. I felt pulled in every direction. I never spent time alone and I paid no attention to my inner life. The few times that I did try and look inward I became utterly confused and scared.
