This will be my final blog post.
I've spent the last few years trying to tie up loose ends and for the most part have been successful. I had envisioned ending this blog on a grander note but like many things in my life it just didn't work out.
This blog has given me the opportunity to voice things I could not speak. Through it I have met people who have shared my illness, understood the pain, and encouraged me. For that I am thankful.
My illness has worn me down physically. I, naively, thought I could mentally "tough it out" but I underestimated the toll that incessant pain can take on the mind.
So, I must end this blog with a whimper. The good news is another loose end is forever bound.
