The Lessons of Blogging
I started this blog for you – I think. It’s not quite what I thought it would be. But that’s not a bad thing.
I had good intentions. However, now it travels in its own direction. And frankly, I’m not sure what direction that is.
Like a kite ripped from my hands by the wind, it floats away in an unpredictable course – high up there in the blue, its shape almost unrecognizable now.
But I’m enjoying the ride. And learning a lot. Mostly, how strong other people with cystic fibrosis are and how weak I’ve been at times. Perhaps, I always knew this. However, when I coughed up blood last week, I was a little less stressed about it thanks to my new friends.
I don’t know how much longer I’ll keep this up. The realities of CF always seem to overcome me and I go back into hiding and come out with a new identity. We’ll see. It’s strange how you can care about people you’ve never met, but frustrating that you can’t do more to help them.
Be well. Take care of your mother.
Love you both.
