June is ALS Awareness Month in Canada and it hit me like a brick. I have been sick in bed with a cold for a week now. As most of my energy is spent dealing with ALS, when you have a cold, you have nothing left to fight with. I am doing my best to rest and recover because 1 week from today is the Annual Walk for ALS at the Ottawa War Museum. As much as I want to roll over and give up (I feel like there is no fight left in me sometimes), your messages of support and sponsorship of the walk help to lift me up and keep fighting.
Even with a cold it is hard to feel sorry for myself when I can still appreciate moments like these...
