On Judgemental People…

Just recently the EB community lost two RDEB teenage souls and my heart broke. This is the same exact diagnose as my son’s, so when this happens I always wonder when will that happen for him. Tomorrow? Next year? 5? 10? The future is scary. It’s unthinkable. It’s something I...

We Judge & It’s Wrong. It’s Just Wrong.

Should it bother me?

I have to admit it. Through my trials of the past nearly 18 years, not much seems to bother me anymore. I am amazed at the thick skin (pun intended) I’ve developed over the years. I chuckle daily at the things people complain about on Facebook or other social networks,...

The funny thing about Priorities…
