Had a great family get-together. It was a combined birthday for my aunt and uncle. (Actually they are my cousins, but since they are considerably older than myself I call them aunt and uncle.)
Anyway, there were lots of family and friends there. Some I hadn’t seen for years. It was a great time.
And here’s the coolest part. Although they asked about my condition, it didn’t make a difference. They treated me the same as always. We teased and joked like we always have.
I felt like the real me there.
