I usually like to scrap about upbeat things but I challenged myself to use a kit that is less than cheery. I journalled a bit about the Graves Disease (hyperthyroidism) diagnosis I was given in December 2018, and consequently spent 2019 medicated and in recovery from. It was a tough year, and it zapped every bit of physical and creative energy I had, while caring for three preschoolers/toddlers at home (and school/activities for my eldest). I am finally starting to feel more 'myself' again but it is truly a ticking timebomb as to whether I'll remain in remission or need treatment again in the future (Graves is an autoimmune condition, so life-long).

Nice work here! I struggle with scrapping things that are less cheery as well - you did a great job capturing what your reality has been! Beautiful scrapping as well!

This is an inspiring layout. So honest. So brave to put it out there. Inspires me to scrap the not-so-perfect stuff too. I love the pocket of confetti and the grawlixe speech bubble!
