Love Those Letters

Image by hoefi

I think one of the best things about writing a blog is getting comments and e-mails from readers. First, because I love to hear how others are handling the challenges of autoimmune disease, but also, gee whiz. It means that occasionally someone actually reads this stuff.

I got a great e-mail from someone named Anonymous yesterday. It was a very sweet and kind letter. Here's my favorite part:

"You're too hard on yourself, Julia. I can't believe that someone who has worked as a nurse and raised a family is really as dopey as you make yourself out to be."

I loved that. Hoo boy.

Well, Anonymous, I really hate to break it to you, but........everything that I have written here is the honest-to-goodness truth, and I can provide witnesses and testimony if I have to.

Yessiree. And I can't even blame my dopiness on autoimmune disease, since others were aware of this character trait long before SjS showed up.

But thanks for expressing your wonderfully optimistic opinion.
