I loved this post, especially when she referred to the quote by Andrew Solomon, which says: “As long as you experience your condition as an illness it’s a prison, and once you experience it as an identity, it’s the source of your freedom. If we can treat illness as identities we liberate people into experiences of great joy that would otherwise be closed to them.” This spoke to me too.

Wow, what a week this has been. It’s always funny to me how life never fails to let you get comfortable and then pull the rug from underneath you. Just when I thought I had reached a good place and gotten my disease under control (to my best ability) I find myself in an ambulance being rushed to the hospital. It was a rough situation and one that looks like it will be putting me through quite a roller coaster for the next few months.
