"Just like one's gender or age, your disease is... a part of your identity"-Jacie
I asked Jacie if our relationship is different from other relationships and she was very clear that my illness has made us closer.
"There are very few things we don't talk about. It's not only the vulnerability that strengthens our friendship but we do our best to spend time together."
Jacie talked about the importance of spending time together and how the time we do spend together is special, because it took effort to make it happen.
"I think I cherish the time I do get with you especially when you are happy and healthy because it doesn't happen a lot."- Jacie
