Infusion day on my birthday

After many months with flu like symptoms, antibiotic after antibiotic I was diagnosed with vasculitis more specifically Graulomatosis with Polyangiitis Aka wegeners disease. A 19 year old girl put her life on hold in 2019 for this rare disease. Dispite being on the verge of death and having the worst possible year of my life in 2019 I am forever greatful and I have learned to embrace my rare disease .
