Hi Chilli,
I'm sorry you're not feeling well at the moment. From your profile it looks like you are very young to be dealing with all of this. Make sure you follow the doctors' advice and I hope you're feeling better soon.

I'm so sorry you're going through this right now. I hope you rest well.

Hopefully you're feeling better now.
