We have lift off!

Hello my name is Eve. I am twenty three and I have Lupus and Arthritis.

Though some days are hard I’ve still been able to do lots of fun things! I am now at University, I have jumped out of a plane with a parachute, I love cooking and I have lots of lovely friends.

In this diary I’m going to show you that having Lupus or Arthritis doesn’t mean life has to stop, it may have to change a little or you may have to do things using a slightly different route but really it’s the same for everyone. We have to face our challenges now, others will have to face challenges laterย but all of this will make us stronger and better people. It’s all about how you view the situation. I have had some hilarious moments, there was one time when….I’ll get back to that one. Just keep your chin up alright. Hold on tight. We have lift off.

    Word has it that the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast from Traal is interested in what you’ve been up to.
    – Other little furry creatures are relieved and impressed with what you’ve done.
    Us mere humans like it too.

    Best wishes Rev’d T & family (no hunky dude either – sorry!)

    You should accept entries by e-mail, some of us have forgotten how to write and post a letter.

    Hello Eve,
    Fraser was over the moon to receive your parcel today. We all loved reading his new monster book. He was very excited that his picture had been chosen! Thank you so very much!
