In an interview, Krystal said, I did expect it to reach Europe and America because I have international friends. "But I never expected for it to be as expansive as it has been. It's crazy - I actually got recognized at my local shops the other day!"
"When I was first diagnosed, I was very uncomfortable. I would be in-tears uncomfortable if someone had to go to the toilet after me. ... And when you're young, it's embarrassing and it's pretty f*cking horrific. It's been slow progress , but I just kind of got sick of caring. Like, who gives a f*ck, it is what it is, I can't do anything about it."
