Ok so I was seriously hesitant to do this, but I figured it could give some hope. So I was skimming facebook and I found some old pictures of me from new years of this year. I remembered I took a picture of myself at that time. At this time, it was before surgery, on 6-MP, Methotrexate and MANY steroids. I was so helpless, so depressed, so sick. I wanted to post these pictures for you all and hopefully if you’re in that spot, you can see it gets better. Honestly, physically, mentally, emotionally…I am so much better.
