This is incredibly honest, moving and powerful. I cannot imagine how hard it was to decide to become public about this, especially as the writer has identified how difficult it was (and continues to be) coming to terms with her diagnosis. It's blogs' like this that leave me in incredible admiration toward the authors. Claire didn't have to share this post, however the positive impact it has had on others is something that no journalist, article or fact sheet could emulate. This post is very relatable to me, even though I have a different diagnosis, and I'm so thankful that Claire shared this.
