First Words

A recent diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis (which rhymes, but never mind) has sent my world spinning.

I thought cancer was the hardest thing I would ever face. Imagine my shock. I find myself missing simple things like another round of chemo.

There's no cure. Most people live 4 to 5 years. I am told I am very lucky that the diagnosis was caught early. I will probably get 10 years.

I turned 40 in May. 10 years could be great. I wish I knew how to feel about them... they suddenly seem to be spinning away out from under me into the place that time goes when we've spent it.
