I occasionally receive private emails telling me that something I wrote really hit home for someone. Suddenly they don’t feel as alone. And bingo, there’s my purpose. Because, sure, this blog isn’t for everyone. There are millions of sites out there with more useful information, more grains of wisdom, more skillful wording than my worn out brain can articulate. But sometimes someone gets me, and I get them, and that is a beautiful opportunity I don’t want to miss out on. Plus, it’s really great to have a place to vent about stuff.
A lot has happened since I first received my diagnosis in 2006. I got worse, I got better, I got worse again. Over and over and over again. Right now I am yo-yoing from here to there and back at an alarming speed, but that’s just par for the course. I don’t know if there will ever be a working combo when it comes to meds. I don’t know if I will ever reach a point where I feel well and recovered more than 10% of the time. But I sure do hope I keep the fight up. And I hope you all will too.
