My mom asked me the other day, “Are you still doing your blog.”
I paused because I wasn’t sure how to answer. I haven’t posted here in months, even though I have updated the blog social media accounts sporadically. If you don’t already follow those, you can find us on Facebook and Instagram.
The last few weeks have been filled with several doctor appointments for Campbell and I’ll admit my brain is on information overload.
One of those appointments was to the geneticist that involved over two hours of updating her medical information along with listening to her doctor explain the newest advances in the fascinating but complex world of genetics.
I’ll be honest, I’ve had trouble with trying to explain everything to family, friends and her therapists, much less writing this blog post without confusing everyone and ultimately myself. Sometimes the more you rehash something, the more questions you have.
I’ve always been a huge lover of words. Not surprising coming from someone who loves to write, I keep quotes and song lyrics in numerous journals I’ve collected over the years.
Not a day goes by where I don’t read or hear words that strike me as relatable to something going on in my life. Many times I see or hear words at the right time and it will help me see things in a new perspective.
Just the other night, I was feeling down and discouraged. We had a lot going on at home, including Campbell having a few seizures that are typically controlled by medicine.
This may be a surprise to some people who know me because I’ve learned to put on a good face, to smile and say I’m fine when really it’s the furthest thing from the truth.
