Life is strange.
Yep, that's all I could come up with to begin this post. Thinking over the last 8 years, while life has been incredibly painful, confusing, scary, heartbreaking and downright insane, it has also shown me beauty, kindness, compassion, gratitude and an abundance of love. What would life be like had I never woken up that dreadful day with what feels like the never ending flu? Would I be happier, more successful, have started a family, and get to drink martinis on the weekends? When I think about these things, I also remember all the incredible and inspiring people I have met on this journey, the places I've traveled (many medical explorations), the time to reflect on the important things in life, a satisfying job that accommodates my unique needs...and now the opportunity to...drumroll...attend a real, live movie premiere in Hollywood!
