Going with "Journey". Had an appointment with my endocrinologist today. I've known things weren't correct for a while. Today I said it out loud, "this disease is now my partner for the rest of my life." So many years after my initial diagnosis it is starting to sink in. So, my journey of really accepting it begins...and these are representative of the tools I will be taking on this journey. There is no status quo with auto immune, just life as it comes.
