Hi! I’m Catherine. So nice to meet you! Let’s get to know each other, shall we? I’ll start…
When chronic illness came into my life I wasn’t sure how my life was supposed to carry on, and for a while it really didn’t. I was stuck. I felt like I had lost everything that made me who I was. I didn’t even feel like a whole person anymore, until one day I picked up a journal and started writing and couldn’t stop. Bit by bit I started to feel like a person again, a little less scared and a little more steady. That’s when I started this blog, and the rest of that story you will find here.
Life isn’t perfect, but it’s not supposed to be and an imperfect life can still be a good life. So I’m just here living my imperfect life, laughing whenever I can, learning from it all and of course blogging along the way.
And I hope you’ll join me.
