My Journal

1406907091

      I think it is fitting that my first journal entry be on August 1st, which is LPHS Awareness Day.  I belong to several wonderful support groups on Facebook including "Living with LPHS" and "LPHS SOS".  I have met many wonderful people from around the world who are going through the exact same struggles that I deal with on a daily basis.  It is a comfort knowing that I am not alone.  I think that being able to communicate with others who understand your situation, regardless of diagnosis or issue, is so very important.  Whether we are sharing ideas that help us to better cope with our illness or just being a sympathetic ear when we need to vent after an especially rough day, it is cathartic in dealing with a disease that has yet to be cured.

     Since 2011, when I was diagnosed with LPHS, I have been unable to work.  However, it has given me more time to devote to my artwork.  That is, when I am feeling well enough (which lately has not been that often).  I have always enjoyed art whether it be drawing, painting, needlework or carving intricate pumpkins at Halloween.  I want to eventually offer pieces for sale here on the website, so that is something to watch for in the (hopefully) near future.

     That is all for now.  I know that I will not be able to add new journal entries daily, but I will do them as often as I can.  Thanks so much for checking out my journal, please feel free to share this site with your friends.

Take Care and God Bless!
