In January, I faced a serious health issue and am now healing.

I’m sharing this because a friend told me about her own serious health concerns. She hadn’t shared because she didn’t know how people would treat her. I don’t want to be part of that societal silence.

So thank you to my co-workers and family for the care you showed. And thank you, everyone else, for allowing me to be human.

If you need to talk about health or pain or how it changes you I’m here to listen.
