A side note about the whole concept of how I am doing: when I say I am doing well, I do not mean that my physical state is good, that my pain level has been reduced or that I have any energy to speak of. What I mean is that I am very well in spirits. I want to fight this illness, I want to live a good life, I want to fight for this cause. I am well loved and cared for, and I have the best friends in the world. The love and support I have received over the last few days has filled my eyes with happy tears and my heart with renewed energy to continue this blog, to keep sharing my story, to keep trying to make a difference and help the lives of others whose pain I know all too well. I am eternally grateful and will never forget your support.
And also, make no mistake about it, I’m a tough chick. 🙂
