  1. I have the same fears. Without having a diagnosis, I have no idea whether I could pass this illness on. I also worry that I won’t be able to physically handle having kids.

    And then I see you, and how you are able to care for your boys. You’re such an inspiration to me! I know how it feels for even the smallest tasks to suck away your energy, yet you still push through. Those are the things Nolan and Archer will remember — plus they will appreciate having a mom who gets it. 🙂

    1. Thank you for those words Liz, they were just what I needed to hear. ♡

      If there is one thing I’ve learned throughout this journey:anything is possible. It may be hard but it’s possible…and worth it.

  2. Life is great. I’m glad people brought me into the world, even though they had social and physical problems in the family. There were times growing up that I wished I had never been born, but I don’t think that’s isolated. It seems to be a fairly universal existential phase.
    In your case, you love your kids. That’s something I never had. They’re going to know that you love them. And that matters more than weekend outings or having enough energy to play, or pain, or basically anything else.

  3. This was very inspiring to read. You are an incredibly strong woman/mom, and I’m sure your boys will see that and learn from it!

    1. Thanks! You’re right. I’m trying to break away from the mindset of “if it’s not [a certain] way, it’s not perfect”. And I’m getting better with it!
