2013, Part 1: Hello Again

It has now been more than 3 years since I was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis (LM). I know other LM patients and caretakers watch this blog, and I wish I'd been able to keep up with it this past year. I've only been able to focus on the most basics of living . . . getting to appointments and doing all we can to keep my body and my brain going. We've had to deal with A LOT of symptoms; I've not had remission.

I was further frustrated by changes made last May to blogger's software. It's getting harder for my brain to keep up or do multiple steps. It's not dissimilar to how we might feel after a couple of margaritas – I'd rather relax that try to do “work” tasks with my brain. I'm learning to be still.

I'm going to try to work around the problem(s) by handwriting my entries and getting help with getting them posted.

We'll see if that works. For now, know that I am still alive, still here, still going! hfh
