My opinion on this disease:

The mother of another patient said to me this: destruction of organs. This definition is horrible and unreal.

I am not a leper. I possess all my organs, even if they are not totally functional.

I'm 22 and I visited a part of the Scotland, Denmark, the Swiss, Austria, Germany, Belgium, 4 corners of France.

I play by tennis with a friend.

I have a car and professional ambitions.
