“So, I faced one fear and started my blog. I hope it helps someone along the way. Thanks to my friends and family who encouraged me to at least try.”
That was one year ago. I can’t believe I survived! Lol.
I wish I could say that my fear has decreased. I’m scared every time I press publish. I’m afraid of revealing too much, too little, too boring….. I still hold a post for a day or two before publishing.
But I’ve gained a lot. I’ve been interacting with some amazing people. I’ve learned from other bloggers and other people coping with this illness. I’ve learned that I am not alone. I’ve learned who’s with me and who’s not. Most of all I’ve learned that this is my story. I can’t fake it. I can’t sugarcoat it. I can’t tone it down to make others comfortable. I’m a mess and it’s ok. And there are those who contributed to my mess. Truth and transparency are my goals.
I thank all of you for your support. I appreciate everyone who reads, shares, follows, replies, and just cares. It means more than you know.
Please continue to keep the dialogue going. It’s important. I promise to stay open, honest, and focused. Luv ya!!
Happy Birthday to us!!!
