First of all I want to say a big thank you to all those who have read my blog thus far. It's been wonderfully comforting to know that other people have taken an interest in my life and are rooting for me. I began writing a blog because I felt prompted to. I thought this was because I could achieve big things with it. I could raise awareness of M.E, I could help other sufferers. As time has gone on I've realised the blog wasn't for anyone else, it was for me. It was an outlet for my feelings, a strategy to cope with the trials that lay ahead and a portal for finding friends that would strengthen, cheer and help me along the way.
This time hasn't ended, but I'm struggling to write a blog that I defined into one category. I used to just have M.E, but now I'm a wife, and a mother and one of my kids has reflux. All these things combined make my life about a lot more than just M.E. So, Thats what I want to write about. My WHOLE life and not just one thing in it.
Let me start over. My name is Jennifer Barber. I'm thirty one years old. I'm married to an extremely understanding and supportive husband. I have a toddler who I'm sure is an angel in cute clothing and I have a baby who is my constant companion 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I'm sure he was sent to try me, but I love him all the more because of it. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints and my faith is what influences every decision I make, what kind of wife I am, how I raise my kids and the reason why I do what I do. This is me, this is my life, and this is my blog. :)
