Hey congrats on getting off the fence, Chassity- you will do fine and have a new life free of this idiotic disease soon! And even if you have some challenges recovering at first, it will be the sort we can handle- healing as opposed to the body attacking itself absurdly day in and day out. The day before and of the surgery, here;s hoping you are relaxed and giddy with light at the end of the tunnel. .
