I am humbled by this thing I call a blog and more importantly the vast, ever growing, and changing community that has been formed simply by the written word – my written word no less.
What keeps people coming back? This was a question I pondered especially in the beginning of this journey and it wasn’t until the emails started filling my inbox and the comments started to pour in, it was then and only then that I realized the impact that my words were having.
In writing this, I try to picture those parents with newly diagnosed kids. Or the kids themselves, now teenagers and young adults looking for shared experiences and commonalities that at the best of times can prove somewhat hard to find, and finally I write this for me.
I am not a parent, but I do know the fear of those long uncertain hospital nights, the nights and days where I was scared shitless to let my mother out of my sight, even long enough so she could go use the washroom or grab a bite to eat. I am terrified when I left alone with the perceived inability to move. In the case of this hospital this terror stemmed from the fact that I was unable to get out of bed on my own as the hospital beds are generally too high.
Its little things like the above story that create common and shared experiences which I truly believe are the backbone of this blog. I have regular readers longing in 24 hours a day from all over the world and to my faithful followers I am honoured you find my content interesting enough to return to time and time again– it is my hope that give you some comfort in those dark times.
