Im relatively young, i guess. 30 now. Had this illness about 3 years. The decade before that i worked really really hard for my career. Now its gone down the shoot. Even if i got well tomorrow and went back, its going to be a year before i am back in the swing of things, and at least that until an employer is going to want to put trust in me again. So best case scenario i have lost 5 years really. Minimum. I guess i can recover from that and have a half descent life, but not if it takes another decade till im treated effectively. Worst for me, is that my daughter was born this year, and i am afraid that i wont ever be able to do anything with her. Take her to a theme park, run with her in the park, etc etc. I can take losing my career, but not that. And by the way, i feel damn lucky that i got this illness this decade and not the decade before, or earlier, as i know many of you did. I genuinely feel upset for those of you who have had this so much longer than me and already lost so much. I hope you get treated before me and at least get some time to do things that you deserve to do.
