A very dear, long-time (only about 30 years) friend of mine posted a Blog Entry about my beautiful boy. I can not express how profound of an impact it had on me.
For the longest time I have felt so alone, that this battle was strictly between me and the powers that be. That isolation is mostly self-imposed I imagine, and I question the validity of it at all after reading what Holly wrote. Other's are also reading what Holly wrote and are realizing that they are not isolated as well. I have great friends who have always offered words of encouragement. We have unofficially 'adopted' new family because of what Bug is going through. And for that I am unimaginably grateful and extremely blessed.
It amazes me that Holly is thinking of my boy with everything else she has going on in her life, but that is what makes any person truly amazing isn't it? Being able to walk in someone else's shoes and support them without thought for yourself. That's Holly!
So I continue to fight the good fight and break through the barriers that exist for people living with Epilepsy, the first being: It is NOT who you are, it was what you live with.
Thanks Holly, I adore you more than you can ever know!
A wonderful read from a wonderful woman:
