Spotlight on: Chloe Karabas 📓💗

“Hi! My name is Chloe Karabas and I am 17 years old. Dealing with Visual Snow as a senior in high school hasn’t been a walk in the park. I have to work a lot harder than all of my peers to manage school work on top of my distracting symptoms. When ACT testing came around, I had a lot of trouble. Each time I took the test, my symptoms would cause migraines and I would be unable to complete the test without throwing up. This was extremely difficult to navigate because I had been working so hard to get a score that I was proud of. However, I made the decision to power through. While Visual Snow symptoms were out of my control, my own attitude was something that I could control. I worked on having a more positive attitude and tried to get my symptoms under control. I found that having a positive attitude alone helped me focus on things rather than my symptoms. I am extremely proud of myself for working past this difficulty and getting a score that I am proud of. I can’t wait to attend college next year because now I know that I can do anything I set my mind to, regardless of my symptoms. A positive attitude is essential for me to cope with VSS. As I like to say: ‘Why spend life complaining about a snow storm when you can just put on some boots and play in the snow?’”
