The PIC line is gone… what now?

I looked forward to today with such anticipation, I had no idea how much I wanted that line out of me until it began to approach. I guess that’s my brain avoiding cognitive dissonance. In any case, I had grand plans for the day: a long bath without any plastic protecting my arm, and a long nap afterwards.

The day was everything I hoped… and yet more of a let down than I anticipated. As more than one person has asked me in the past few days … “what now”? I know the answer, but it’s not quite what I wish it were … continue on the slow road to recovery. I guess that’s one of the things this blog will document.

  2. HI Lisa,

    It sounds like you’ve had a long and difficult journey. I’m glad you were able to find the support you needed. To rise out of these difficulties and start school again is an achievement you should be proud of! I look forward to your book, but I hope you are able to focus right now on getting well. Have you joined a support group in your area, that can be a great sources of information and understanding.

    All the best.
