First in a series of posts about the ten years since my diagnosis.
In 2007 I felt like my life was cornered into “Game Over.” Instead, it said “Free replay!”
Earlier this month on Twitter, health futurist @Berci asked which books I’ve read recently. It reminded me that for the past several years I’ve wanted to blog about how my views have changed as I’ve learned more about healthcare, which saved my life yet which has so many extraordinary malfunctions and disconnects, even as it accomplishes more and more apparent miracles. Even disconnects and malfunctions among very smart and conscientious people.
As I dug out the facts for this retrospective – my Amazon buying history (in print and audio and Kindle) and reviewed my travels (1.1 million miles to 500+ events) I thought wow, this has been an amazing trip, with some significant turns along the way. So I’ve decided to blog the odyssey and evolution year by year.
In this post, for 2007, there’s not much blogging, and no speeches, but a lot of terror, facing mortality, redemption and joy.
