I'm guilty of it without realizing it. I "tell it like it is," sometimes. I write a post. Spill whatever is going on. Release it. Feel better when I don't have to carry it anymore. Then move on.
And then I expect that my blog friends will come and commiserate, cheer me up, pray for me, or laugh along with me. End of story, right?
But the part that continues to just floor me every time?

And really- you should just go read. I was so surprised! Its a short introductory post, but you'll see why I was left humbled. Plus, its a blog that I think so many people will find insightful and helpful and inspiring.
Dr. Shelby Terstriep's blog:
I'm feeling better! I adjusted my meds and it helped. One more day and my second round will be complete!
I have sedation and a brain mri on Wednesday... Dr. Foster on Thursday and we have another birthday boy to celebrate!
Happy 11th Birthday to my Colton Jack!
