My Sun Still Rises

Posted Aug 19 2009 5:27pm

A short while ago I took a break from M.S.  I didn’t have a choice really.  Another, more powerful, force than the disease began to consume my life, filling me with grief, despair, fear, humiliation and a pain that neither cancer nor Multiple Sclerosis ever imparted upon me.  “The hubby”, as he has been endearingly referred to here in so many posts, and I have separated.  The very unexpected story, the pain, the details are all too private for this place and out of respect for our families I shall keep those details vaulted away from my virtual life.  A pancake, no matter how thin, always has two sides, doesn’t it?

This blog is called Sunshine and Moonlight: A Journey with Multiple Sclerosis. Don Williams Jr. once wrote:   “The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.

When I read that quote once again, I realized that my path here in “The Sunshine” has ended, but my journey has really just begun.  These virtual pages carry too many bittersweet memories.  A crossroads has been reached.  For my writing to continue to benefit myself and others, it has to come freely and be shared in a serene environment.  “The Sunshine” no longer provides that for me. 

However, after tens of thousands of unique hits to this site, the story is still important.  The lessons learned in the first two years of a life-altering diagnosis just can’t be erased.  Sunshine and Moonlight will continue to exist as a resource and I hope a help to at least one or two people every day.

Today, I invite you to continue this journey with me, just in a new place, a different place.  So much of the story has yet to be told, has yet to even be designed for me.  “My Sun Still Rises” is my new home and you don’t even need MapQuest to help you get there.  Just click HERE or on the title above and join me as the journey continues.
