As you know, my chemo is more than half way over and I've pretty much 'aired' as much as a person can air about their cancer journey.
For the past 5 months I felt like I've moved into a glass house. I chose to share every detail of a very private and sometimes painful experience. I did that because writing about it helped me heal. And in some cases, reading about it, helped you understand my situation better.
The purpose to this 'glass house' has been well fullfilled.
You, the reader, has been kept abreast (haha, pun intended, couldn't resist) on my situation and I got to vent.
But, after some time I realized I do not wish to live in a glass house. First, it freaks out the neighbours whenever they look in. Second, there's too much light being let in. The time has come to get some curtains, close the doors and shut the gate.
No more lookie-loo's from a distance. No sireee.
From now on, at Casa Knock Knock, you'll have to be invited in.
In fact, you should call first, and if we're up for a visit, we'll set a date.
You know, like 'normal folks' do it.
And while the voyeur in me may have some adjusting to do, I think in the end I'll be just fine.
I will learn to live with not having everyone know my business.
I may even flourish.
Thanks for coming along for the ride, the journey or whatever we want to call this time.
I appreciate your thoughts, your prayers, your comments and most of all your friendship.
I know (because I can see it in my stats) that you've been reading and that you care.
And it means the world to me.
Please leave your email address in the comments if you wish to continue reading this blog and would like me to add your email to my limited list of readers.
(There is absolutely no guarantees that I'll add it to my very short list, but if you'd like to try, by all means leave it for me please) and an automatic email will follow should your email be used.
Oh and if you're not on the list?
You may just have to pick up the phone and call to see how I'm doing!
