Pain is my life, but not everything in my life…

When I started my very first blog I gave myself a holy promise to never write about my pain, because I didn't want to give it more focus than it already had in my life. Today I feel differently. My pain is one of the things that make me who I am, and a large part of my … Continue reading Pain is my life, but not everything in my life…

Too many superlatives...     I'm an incredibly rigid Swedish person and I don't particularly … Continue reading Some more emotional outbursts, please… Or not…
