Hey Codi,

I'm 25 and I'm not ready to be ill! I'm very lucky that the symptoms that get in the way the most (joint pain/fatigue) seem to come and go. When they go, I go go go! I have to make the most of it.

I'm travelling Australia and spending most of my time living in the back of a van. When I'm ill I have to face facts and accept that that lifestyle has to change a bit. But only a bit.

There's still so much to do, that can be done. Staying positive is haaaaaaarrrrd. But hey, we're young, we're gonna have to do something to keep us going! Thanks to medication etc we can live a long life, let make it a good one xx
