Well, I’ve decided to come out of the closet…
Not THAT closet!
I mean the one where I’m trying to hide my leukemia.
I’ve been worried that once people knew what I had they would start treating me differently – not knowing how to act around me or even avoiding me.
But the day Leuk came to visit, he wasn’t just effecting me. Each member of my family has to deal with him too. And my trying to keep a lid on him makes it difficult for them to talk to friends who might offer comfort.
I hope this blog helps others fighting with Leuk and encourages them to take the bastard head on; he doesn’t always win you know.
Books on blogging sometimes say there are two general types of blogs: topical and personal. I guess that makes this one a hybrid; it is a personal journal with a specific topic.
Leuk and I will have an interesting journey together and I promise to be honest about every step, without bumming you out too much.
