To my surprise, I made it to the final in London in November, coming 4th out of 23 competitors. I was a young mother with my life ahead of me, and it felt so unfair I had this disease. I felt robbed of my femininity and sexuality. I knew there were risks attached and, as a mother, that was a big consideration.
In my 20s and 30s, my life was crazy and I was burning the candle at both ends.
