Transparency is my goal, actually.
I have no interest in pity. Sympathy is fine, but I am not seeking it.
This blog is about my life, my humor, my passions, my pup, and my hardships. It is a positive, honest place. Illness is a huge part of my life. I talk about it when it is appropriate and I try to use my voice to help others with chronic and mental illness. I talk about my struggles, but I try to keep complaining to a minimum and I try to keep a positive outlook even when things are dire. Most people seem to appreciate that.
I will admit that when I write things for my blog I can present the best version of myself. I can be profounder, humbler, and wiser than if I was having a spontaneous conversation with someone. But you are free to ask those who know me best. This blog, my words, my ideas… they are very much me. Just with a bit of spit & polish for public consumption.
