Again, an amazing blog post. <3 I also try and do random acts of kindness, so many people struggle in daily life and if one person can make them smile, it makes me feel happy. Love you! :hugs:

Love the positivity in your latest post! When do exams start for you?

Missing your old avatar btw. If that's Chucky, I have a crippling fear of him...

Ive been flaring on and off for the last 2 years and have tried various medication. My last flare was very bad as I collapsed at home in the middle of the night and woke up in A&E. A week later when it looked like i was on the mend. I collapsed in hospital in the middle of the night while losing 6 pints of blood. I luckily collapsed on the hospital alarm which alerted the nurses and possibly saved my life. I am now in imflixamab which was working well but looks like it no longer works so will be having surgery which im actually looking forward to.

What medication are you on?

Dearest Ravioli,

I didn't get a chance to read this fully until now, and I just want to say that I had tears in my eyes by the end of this. This is not an exaggeration. I really wish I could might you right now, and give you a massive hug.

I love you. You are so strong and beautiful.

How old were you when you got diagnosed? Yeah, me too but the thought of experiencing a flare is just so damn scary because I hated what I experienced before I was diagnosed.

I was diagnosed 2 years ago when I was 17. It has put my life on hold so surgery for me is needed.
