One More Voice

Not Dead Yet!

Everytime I'd call my mother and ask how she was doing she'd say, "I'm not dead yet!" Her response used to hurt my feelings because I was really concerned about her wellbeing.

Well, I have been out of touch for a while. My personal life was on a one-way ticket to no where. But after the dust has settled, I must say as mama did, I'm not dead yet!

I say this with a smile, a wink and hope that my path will level off and have smooth sailing.

I will continue to be an advocate for health, an example of living beyond pain and one of many voices for people living with Sickle Cell Disease (yes, in all caps!).
