Well, this is the third time I am starting a blog. The first one lasted about two years and had about 200 followers. I picked up most of those followers because of the Weekly Photo Challenges. The other postings were sometimes good, sometimes bad. I got bored. I deleted the whole site. I should have saved some of the better posts. That’s hindsight for you.
The second time I started a blog was a little over a year ago, when I was diagnosed with MDS. That is, myelodysplastic syndrome. To be more specific, the MDS-RCMD flavor of the disease. RCMD is an easy way to say refractory cytopenia with multilineage dysplasia. That’s a mouthful. After about two weeks, I took down that site as well. I just didn’t have the interest in maintaining the blog as I began my MDS journey.
Both the above blogs didn’t identify me. This one may or may not. I give the URL to those interested in my health. Some people don’t want to ask how things are going and sometimes I don’t want to bother telling others how things are going. This is one way for those I know to keep up on my disease progression and hopefully, cure. There is no cure for MDS other than a bone marrow stem cell transplant. That is the point where I am at – awaiting a transplant.
