see what i did there? haha.
anyway, i recently emailed my biology teacher (im not confident...AT ALL) and the result of asking him to give a lesson to the class, is a whole year nine assembly! they mentioned being accepted, for hair colour, this other swelling thing (the name has slipped my mind) and finally raynauds. they said quite a bit about raynauds, what it is, how it can be treated, who has it and she also mentioned how to prevent it. then she said there are some students and teachers (?? not sure who...) in the school who have it and you will probably see them wearing gloves, at that point according to my friend who sat next to me, i slid down in my chair lower and lower, everyone was looking! and im not one looking for attention!! then i started saying dont look at me dont look at me,, under my breath haha. its quite funny now come to think of it
but my point is, to those who are like me and are still in school, feeling selfconcious is bad enough, but with raynauds and other complications too? dont be afraid to speak out, raise awareness and tell someone about it. its made my life so much easier and its only a day later (touch wood bla bla bla)
so the key thing is, SPEAK OUT!! dont be afraid! email, write or talk face to face with someone about it, even if you do what i did, it makes a difference, not just to me in my case, but you guys too, because if we all did this, eventually loads of people will know about the condition. i'm always here to talk with ANYONE at ANYTIME (although im busy sometimes )
