I could party all weekend and think nothing of it. I could live on a couple of hours sleep a night. My only concerns were drinking a little too much and making myself a little bit sick! Now I'm faced with a long list of hazards that I'd never needed to consider before..
I often feel that I have to justify my medical needs more than some other people, because mine isn't recognised anywhere by anyone! I always find myself thinking that no one has even heard of it, unless they personally know someone with it.
