Introspective Tuesday

I’m feeling introspective today more so than usual. I was playing around on Facebook when a new blog post popped up in my news feed from a high school friend’s blog, Before and Afro. Today’s entry title – MAJOR LIFE UPDATE. Between the wording and the all caps, I was intrigued to see what she was announcing. (Note: her past blog entries have been about her adventures as a white girl rocking an Afro wig, it’s pretty awesome).

So I logged onto her blog to read the new entry to find that she quit her job to figure out what she wants to do with her life and blog full-time.

To say that I am jealous is an understatement.

I have blogged on and off since I was in high school. I go through phases where I get really into it and then stop for long periods of time. However, since launching Caring for Crohn’s, I have seriously begun thinking about how to turn my blog into a career. I really enjoy writing about our journey and sharing our story with others who may be experiencing the same problems.

While this blog has a purpose and makes me happy, as the caretaker of someone with a chronic illness, I can’t just up and quit my job (although, bravo to Michelle for being able to do it!). I need to have an income for the times that Dan has doctors appointments or needs a medical procedure. I need to have health insurance so we can afford his Remicade infusions every six weeks.

Just another way that Crohn’s Disease rules my life and I don’t even have the disease.
