Hai-oh!

Hello, my name is Kathryn. I'm 16. :)

I used to come on here pretty frequently, but I was one of the members who left a few months ago when things got pretty bad. I've been coming back on the last few weeks or so, kinda lurking. xD

Anyway, about me.
I have lupus, an auto-immune disease. Its been pretty bad since my diagnosis. Its NOT cancer, but I needed chemotherapy three times, for a total of 15 doses. It wasn't fun :P
I'm off school until February, getting treatment for my lupus. So I'm online quite a bit. xD If you ever need to PM me, expect a reply fairly quickly!

I currently have 1 betta, named Dixie, but she is sick right now ): Being treated for popeye. I used to have 12 bettas, but had a columnaris outbreak that wouldn't be treated. My mom became addicted to bettas as well, and she has 4; Skittles, Splatters, Petals and Daisy.

I am a reptile fanatic. :) I have a bearded dragon named Tank. 5 leopard geckos named Nina, Rosie, Miracle, Ritz and Mya. I'm going to be breeding Ritz and Mya after New Years. I have 3 crested geckos, named Chester, Monkey and Charlie. A blue tongue skink named Skinky (named by my 6 year old twin cousins). And a green tree frog named Murray. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in leopard geckos especially, so if you ever have any questions about that, let me know!

I also have two dogs. A boxer/lab named Houston and a beagle/daschund named Frank. :)

I want to be a vet when I am older. I am currently leaning towards a herp vet (reptiles and amphibians), but I'm still deciding xD

I like to make jewellery, and read. I love books that take place in the regency and victorian era times. :)

Thats about all I can think of xD
Ta ta!

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.
