I can’t tell you how touched and encouraged I have been by all the wonderful messages and comments that have come to me since my last post. Whether here on the blog, or outside of it, I’ve felt hugely supported by the stories you’ve told me and the advice you’ve offered. The experience of a chronic illness is a very isolating one, particular when several years of it have passed, and one wonders whether one still has any right to the sympathy and help of others. Thanks to my virtual friends, I don’t have to feel alone at all, or lacking in sympathy and solidarity. I do appreciate that more than I can say.
I’m actually going to take a brief blog break now, in order to follow up on some helpful conversations I’m having off line and the suggestions that you’ve all been kind enough to make. There are several things I’d now like to try or think about.
I’ll be back next week. Thanks and virtual hugs to you all again. You are the best.
