Every now and again I take a break from my usual episode content and launch into storytelling. Today I have a couple of stories for you. The first is called “The grand betrayal” and it’s about an incident that happened with 2 of my personal care attendants and myself. We all collided and made a hot mess out of things.

The second is called “my glass-half-empty just turned upside down.” This is a slightly more upbeat story about being hopeful about an effective treatment for my disease, only to have my hopes dashed, and then coming around to seeing things with a bigger lens.
