I write because just a few years ago, I was diagnosed with Budd Chiari Syndrome and I was alone. I wanted nothing more than to find someone who was living. Fighting the very same fight and who was winning. I write because when I found no one, I wanted to be here for the next person who has no idea where to start. So that I can share my stories with others like me or others who just want to know what life is like on the liver transplant list and so that they can see that while it is a scary journey, there are others out there going though the exact same thing.
This is going to be my second year doing the Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge. Last year I managed to do 25 out of 30 days and I was really upset with myself for not getting all the days in. But it happens. This year I am trying to be more prepared and even write a few of the challenges out ahead of time. I guess we will see if it works.
