A few people have asked me why I don’t exclusively write about my Lupus and other disorders. Well the answer is simple, these things don’t define me. They are HUGE stumbling blocks in my life but I continue to breathe and therefore live.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I struggle. There have been days, weeks, months and shit maybe years when I questioned my ability to hobble on. Days when I was filled with sorrow and despair. But I don’t want to dedicate this space to that. To do that would negate the fact that I’m attempting to heal and also coexist with these issues. I don’t take issue with anyone who chooses to use platforms available to them to bring awareness to their plight. Everyone should do what feels right for them.
Writing is my catharsis and to limit my writing to the scope of chronic illness would be doing myself a great disservice. When the sun shines, it shines on everything above ground (not comparing myself to the sun. I don’t view myself as some omnipotent celestial being! I just couldn’t think of a good analogy). I can’t focus on one topic when my life is so much more! I hate the term lifestyle blog because the terms has been abused! I’ve just created a little corner where I occasionally pop up from to discuss what I’m experiencing at the time. So while I know some of my followers are hoping to get some more content specific to chronic illness, please bear the above in mind.
