Public meltdowns are always hard. Even with 10 years of experience with them it’s hard not to be at least a little embarrassed because all eyes are on you. I’m not crying, you’re crying! So I got a little emotional when we hit 10,000 subscribers…what of it? I’m just so very thankful for all of you.

Thank you! Congratulations on your diagnosis <3 I’m happy my blog has been helpful for you.

I’m pretty good at fighting? It’s 100% enthusiasm that makes me decent at it, I guess. I was in martial arts as a teenager, and while my form and patterning were never great, I was a vicious little thing who was hard to beat at sparring. People do not expect this.
