UK Woman With Two Painful 'Invisible' Conditions Says She Won't Let Them Define Her

From UK news outlet Nottinghamshire Live:
Woman with two painful 'invisible' conditions says she won't let them define her
She has dealt with pain and illness for the last six years
A woman who has spent the last six years battling pain has said she is determined to prove she is stronger than the chronic conditions she is living with.
Agata Slaby, 27, had been plagued with pain and fallen ill countless times over the last few years, but is now relieved to finally have been given a diagnosis.
After years of hospital appointments and tests, Agata, of Wollaton, was told by doctors in February she has Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus), as well as Fibromyalgia.
Both are incurable, and people must find ways to live with their condition, often pushing through immense pain, everyday.
Despite the prognosis, Agata feels positive about finally understanding her pain, and is using fitness as a way to combat it.
"I've learnt to adjust - [professionals] expect you to feel low but it's how you react and there are ways to deal with it," she said.
