It might seem wild to see me making a second post in one day, but there is another important topic that I have to talk about today.
Today is Rare Disease Day.
It is February 29th on leap years, but every other year it is February 28th.
It’s really important for us to acknowledge even the rare diseases, because while they may not be commonly seen, knowing that they exist and may be the cause of problems can change the lives of patients. As someone who is living with chronic illness, I feel that it is very important to recognize these diseases, because I know how it feels to be ignored or let down by the medical system.
