Letter to my 21yo self

Blog, News ! / Saturday, November 13th, 2021

I am so proud of you.

You followed your dreams.
You travelled.
You attended many live shows.
You worked with crazy talented people.

You are stronger than you think.
You put up with so much crap.
You gave endless second chances to friendships that were never meant to be.
You always saw the best in people.
You made mistakes and you grew from them.

You had no idea one year after this picture you would find yourself paralyzed on the kitchen’s floor.
You’d loose your job, your flat, most of your friends.
You’d spend months waiting for doctors appointments, only to be told it was all in your head.

Life got real dark real fast.
Symptoms worsened.
But you kept trying not to drown.

And then they finally diagnosed you with an orphan incurable condition.
So many hospitals stays.
So many MRIs.
So many medication trials.

Yes you have gained 15kg from medication side effect.
You lost your beautiful long golden blond hair.
You no longer wear emo outfits and your life is forever changed.

But you survived.
I am proud of you
