Throughout the past year, after that thing was removed from my head, I’ve had memories trickling back to me.  Thankfully, my nice brain saved these great memories somewhere!  I guess they were blocked by the 20 to 30 year old tumor for quite some time.  Now, it is making me realize so much.  The biggest “a-ha” is that as the tumor grew in its location, I had to focus only on people and things right in front of me to survive.  Unfortunately, I somehow managed to cut myself off from a lot of people.  I’m so sorry!! I get sad thinking about it.  I did not mean to create any divides or come across that way to anyone.  But I know all my true friends are willing to understand what is and was going on in my head.  It will take time, but I am reaching out to people to re-connect.  I get scared and nervous, but, more importantly, I am excited to reconnect with so many great people!

Memento Gathering

 

Found a bunch of aged matches…from many different states & countries, and one I think is from college! Do these still exist? But there are some memories as well! Is it strange that the matchbook reminding me of different visits with so many people? These remind me of many friends: Aly, Lyn, Katherine, Mike, Shane, Steven, Tanis & Taryn….
