hi! i'm sof i was diagnosed with severe crohn's disease in march 2015, right before my high school graduation & prom. all of a sudden, i was hit with a reality that no young person should have to live with: i have a monster inside my body, & it will be there forever. i have encountered many struggles since then, involving mental & physical health issues. i started to discover that writing was a very cathartic outlet for me. and so, my works on here will consist mainly of being a chronically ill young woman, navigating the world i've been pushed into, & trying to come to terms with my "new" body, "new" mind, & the reality that i will never be the same.
