“I’m scared I’m not going to make it to my 31st birthday"

An interview with Sarah Lau of Manchester, MD.

"I feel like there’s a supernova going off inside my body. And everything’s falling apart. And I’m scared. I’m scared I’m not going to make it to my 31st birthday. And I’m getting the feeling from not only health professionals, but also regular people, that “others have it worse, so why are you complaining”, kind of thing. Yeah, there are people who have it worse, but my situation could be better. And there are ways to go about that."
