Thank you07/15/2008 03:07:51
It all started very slowly and before I knew it my life had significantly changed. I have days like most people with chronic illness that I feel on the outside looking in on life.
Writing has helped me get my voice back. Maybe I'm not as eloquent as I once was, but it's a start. My doctors assistant Jody had been my voice for many years, she instinctively knew I had trouble communicating my needs at times or I was too embarrassed to ask for samples of medication I couldn't afford. Some how Jody knew,
Dr. Wallace has listen to me cry over leaving my job, hair loss, separation, and aggravation over the lack of research or funding for a cure, he listens. My neighbor Dorothy who has all ways reached out to me, even after living in my home for six years I'm still struggle talking about my illness (I'm much better).
Thank you to all my life lines. Some day I'll go to each of them and say thank you and not worry that Lupus will once again take my voice away
