Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

Slowly reaching out


I am finally putting myself out there, reaching out and responding to other parents in support groups (online) for parents of children with LGS.  I cannot honestly say why it has taken me so long to do this, though I think I have had a lot of stuff on my plate.  Anyway, now I am doing it.  I’m a little nervous, which is silly.  It is almost like I’m afraid people won’t like me or won’t want to hear what I have to say.  Really, if either is true, so what?  They can ignore me.  That’s just fine by me.

I guess it is just that it is remarkably hard for me to open myself up.  Somewhat odd for someone with a blog, but it is hard for me to share personal details.  This blog feels different to me.  I welcome input but don’t get a whole lot – fine too 🙂  by the way.  Actually, I think keeping this blog is helping me open up.  I’ve been writing here for a while now and nothing dreadful has happened.  It helps to have a place to vent, to share frustrations, and to share triumphs.  With the support groups, I am hoping that it will help to talk to others in similar positions with similar experiences.

We shall see.  Who knows…maybe I will make new friends.  That would be lovely.

  1. Good for you! I read your blog, but don’t comment. I also have that exact same quote/graphic printed and hung in my office!


    • Thanks! I loved Christopher Reeve and I just found the quote inspiring. I think I might print it out and take it to work – good reminder throughout the day!
