A Year in Review (2011)

Well, 2011 is officially over, and I've already been having a rough start to the new year. But, I'd like to take a look back at what last year held. My memory stinks, so I'm relying a lot on previous blog posts... but this will also help me, when I'm trying to do my scrapbook (yay).

I know that last year was filled with plenty of pain, guilt, and frustration... but, I'm trying to remember it in a more positive light. Last year was a year of... CHANGE, and change isn't always bad. I know that change is always occurring, but last year just seemed to be filled with a lot of big changes for us.
I did more awareness actions this year, which I plan to continue. I've made it a point to participate in health activist writing challenges, spread the word about initiatives of some different groups (including AHDA, NHF, MRF), attend a NHF conference, and to participate in national awareness initiatives (including National Pain Awareness Month, Invisible Illness Week, Migraine Awareness Week).

So, farewell to 2011!
