July 2015
 The final day of my 4th exam period creeping up on me, with my very last exam for the semester. I remember I was trying to study. I set down started to read, and I could feel that I am going to fall off the chair. I went to my bed. It was a lot better there, so I thought I would go back, and read my big book again. I started to read, but I couldn't push through. I was about to go into the examination hall. But I couldn't. I was sitting on the side of the road near Kalvin square in Budapest, and I was crying. I somehow lost myself, I looked like a shell of a person of who I was.I lost a lot of weight and I was still going down. I didn't do the exam, and I left the school. I promised myself that day, that I would never do something, that doesn't give me at least a bit of joy.

December 2015 I was diagnosed with Crohn's. I couldn't eat, there were times when I just couldn't move out of bed, because I was feeling so weak. In my early twenties to realize that something is going to stay with me forever was daunting. After probably the darkest months of my life things started to slow down. I've been put on steroids (with occasionally forgetting them of course) for two years, joined a company back in Budapest for almost the same amount of time with very supportive people, and been living a normal life with occasional flares. 

Fast forward to 2017 when I've moved to the UK, and decided to stay for good. I've received such and amazing support from the NHS just after a few months... I've been taken off steroids, and only had a few minor episodes of flares ever since. I feel like I've got my life back again and I am ready to concur the world, for the first time in years. Therefore I decided to do this half marathon. To show myself, that I can do it despite everything that's been going on the past few years. To destroy all the obstacles that are in my head.  I would like to support the research, so that in the future it's easier for someone like me, when they get the news, not just in the UK, but worldwide. I would like to raise awareness of this invisible diseases, as it affects far more lives than you'd think.  I got better, but not everyone is as lucky as me. 

Please donate! Even a pound could help improve lives of millions. 

Thank you!

2015 Juliusa Vizsgaimra tanultam. Gyenge voltam, szedultem es rengeteg fogytam, kb egy honap alatt.  Emlekszem tanulni akartam. Leultem az asztalhoz, hogy olvassak, es ugy erzetem mintha minjdart lefordulnek a szekrol. Lefekudtem az agyamba. Sokkal jobban erztem magam azonnal, szoval gondoltam visszamegyek tanulni. Elkezdtem olvasni, de egyszeruen nem ment. Nem tudtam tanulni.Probaltam bemenni a vizsgara. A Kalvin terig jutottam. Erztem, hogy semmi erom es leultem a M3 metro kozeleben egy patkara, es sirtam. Valahol ebben az egy honapban teljesen elveszitttem magam.. Csak arnyeka voltam a regi onmagamnak. Nagyon lefogytam, es egyre csak fogytam es fogytam. Nem csintaltam meg a vizsgat, es az iskolat is otthagytam. Aznap megigertem magamnak, barmi amit a jovoben csinalni fogok valami oromot kell, hogy hozzon az eletembe. 

2015 Decembereben hivatalosan is diagnosztizaltak a Crohnom. Voltak napok amikor nem tudtam enni.  Voltak napok, hogy nem tudtam kimozdulni az agybol. A sotet honapok utan a dolgok lassan elcsendesettek, leassultak. Szteroidokat szedtem (szokasomhoz hiven kisebb-nagyobb kihagyasokkal) ket evig, dolgoztam Budapesten ahol nagylelku es segitokesz emberek vettek  korul. 


2017-ben elkoltoztem Angliaba, es ugy donottem, hogy maradok. Csak par honappal az erkezesem utan eszemeletlen segitseget kaptam az angliai NHS-tol. Nem szedek mar szteroidokat es csak alig langol fel a Crohnom. Tudok fokuszalni olyan dolgokra amikre eddig nem tudtam. Ugy erzem vegre visszakaptam az eletemet. 
Ezert donottem ugy, hogy iden lefutok egy felmaraton, es adomonyokat gyujtok a Crohn es Colitis kutatas szamara. Meg akarom magamnak mutatni, hogy minden akadalyt le tudok kuzdeni, legyen az fizikai vagy mentalis. Ha barki az en helyzetemben lenne a jovoben szeretnem, hogy egyszerubb es konnyebb legyen a hir feldolgozasa mint nekem volt. Ez a lathatatlan betegseg dobbeket erint mint azt sokan gondolnak, es sokan nem olyan szerencsesek mint en. 

Barmekkora adamony segiti a kutatast!

Koszonom.
