I have a liver dis-ease called primary billiary cirrhosis (PBC) for short. PBC is one of the less known diseases where the autoimmune system goes into overdrive and attacks the liver. One of the complications, and there are so many, is a condition called Raynaud’s syndrome. My fingers and toes go completely numb and I can’t walk or write. Creating artwork digitally has been great therapy and a healing process that has helped me cope…and it is FUN!
If I don’t write stuff or if some of my comments seem the same. It is because they are. I do a lot of cut and paste, I write when I can and save into word files to re-use.
I am on a healing journey…I want to increase the awareness of this “non-alcoholic” liver cirrhosis (although I did drink and come from a long line of drinkers.). PBC used to be diagnosed so late that it was considered an ‘end-stage’ disease, but now, with earlier diagnosis and life-saving URSO (uric acid), the prognosis is good. With my situation, the auto-immune complications are the ones that ‘slow me down’ the most.
I am Blessed! To honor that we are all Blessed..To remember that we all belong to each other in this world…To share my experiences…To try new adventures and realize that life is a great adventure we all share…To Laugh…To Love… To Dance…To Sing…To Move…ahhhh, yes!
Grab a cup of coffee, or the beverage of your choice, sit back, relax and join me on this adventure. Be Blessed.
