Since being sidelined with an IC flare up, I felt really alone - almost isolated - and it made me feel depressed. Over 50% of women with IC attempt suicide. Don't worry, I'm not among that statistic. I've just been feeling helpless and not may normal do-it-yourself kinda girl.
Today, however, I had a silver lining. I posted something for work on the Product Review Place. I LOVE this site, both as a professional and as a blogger. The bloggers are fantastic and the women who run the network are AMAZING! Sometimes, when people read pitches, they become skeptical. Some of them become mean - remember the lady who threatened to sue me? Well, today I got a nice surprise. Apparently, those that worked with me in the past LIKE ME!
I got such a nice reception to this posting that I felt the need to blog about it. The women on TPRP really made my day, today. You brightened my day and brought a little more life back into me.
This was an important lesson for me - sometimes things suck but the smallest act of kindness can mean the world to someone.
