I’ve always wanted to try blogging, although I thought it would be about adventure travel, the non-profit Todd and I started, Global Grins http://www.globalgrins.org, or my currently-on-hold new fashion line. No, my blog is not about something I enjoy ~ it’s about my struggle with a disease that is keeping me from all the things I enjoy. My entire life I have avoided sickness like the plague. I’ve never had a broken bone, I’ve never had stitches, I’ve never had surgery, I’ve never fainted, I’ve never had a f-ing nosebleed. I have a MASSIVE phobia of needles (and snakes), and a doctor’s office has been like a new foreign land that will place a stamp in my passport.
MY HOW THINGS CHANGE…
This blog is my outlet – a place I can address my fears, my frustration, and my little victories along the way. I’ve got a death grip on my sense of humor, since that is key to any difficult situation. I don’t really care if anyone out there reads one word. It’s raw and it’s honest. Most readers will probably be offended by the graphic photos and unladylike language – sorry!
