About Me:
Margo N., Age 12

Hiya! As I read through all of the stories of all the kids who have problems like me, I felt like I could be finally understood, finally seen. 

All my life, I just hid my problems, my fears. They were just tucked away inside of me to be ignored and never heard. This year I have realized that if people don't take me for who I am, then they don't know who I really am. They should just learn to accept me. 

So, that’s why when I told my friends that I have an autoimmune disorder called sarcoidosis, and arthritis in my hands and wrists, and knees was a part of that, I was very surprised to find them interested in what I had, and even searching it up to find ways to help me. 

It made me feel special, and that people actually did accept me, because they felt my pain. I thought that like many others, they would think that I would be a “weirdo,” but I found that people do care; it just has to be the right people.

Thank you to all those people out there who really do care.
