I haven’t posted in ten days; I usually post two to three articles a week. But, a close friend of mine, Jess, passed away. She had muscular dystrophy. The past week has been very difficult for me. I also have to juggle my grief with my job; my students are preparing for the state championship this week. It’s hard to put what I’m feeling into words. I hope to get back to you all soon.
In the meantime, this Saturday, February 28, is Rare Disease Day. Check out my last article, 5 Obstacles People With Rare Diseases Face. You’ll see honest stories from people with diseases like aplastic anemia, a rare form of breast cancer, hypothyroid, lichen sclerosis, ovarian cysts, Ehlers-Danlos, and my journey with myasthenia gravis.
