I don't think anyone should shy away from this swap because they're not "sick enough". For one, I think most people tend to underestimate the severity of their own disease. I meet sick people all day and the ones with serious chronic diseases are usually the sweetest ones.
I wouldn't mind partnering up with someone with trichotillomania, and I know it can be a real tough disease to cope with, especially when you're young. I bet there are tons of crafty things that could help you...
That's just the thing. We are experts on our own diseases, but it can be a real eye opener to get a glimpse of what others go through and try to make them happy by crafting awesome stuff
i guess i never look at it this way! but i think i'm going to join just so i can do my best to make someone else feel better!! it's always wonderful when someone else tries to step into your shoes and help.
