Sonia Guerra is a young woman with a secret. It’s one that her body kept so well, even she didn’t know it. It started when she was very young. She was suffering from something, but she didn't know what. For days she couldn't eat or drink. She missed school. Doctors misdiagnosed her or told her parents she was making it up. This went on for seven years. Listen to her story below.
