Heya! I'm Poppy, 25 and living in Lincolnshire. I'm still figuring out this new life since my diagnosis and over a year of illness. I'm an artist, I work at home when I can and that's my biggest passion. And I also want to work in schools part time as a teacher/teaching assistant. 
Would love to meet people on here who understand and maybe make some friends. :smile:
