Why am I on a road trip like this when I am among the least health people in the country? Because:
- I wanted to
- Its a great change to do something completely different
- I am meeting some people I have known online since 2007 but have never met in person.
Reason number 3 is the most important to me. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I went online for support and to find out information about my latest health debacle. I met all these wonderful women who were also coping with their own breast cancer demons. They were amazingly helpful and supportive and got me through some tough times.
But I never met them in person and now here I am. I will get to meet some of the people who were very important to me and understood what I was going through like no one else could.
