This morning I was clearing out messages from my IN box, sifting through those folders that I forget to look at. You know those ones where a certain class of message gets “automagically” sent, where it rests unopened and ignored.
Well I spotted one such message automatically sent to me last month, from this blog. Did I want to allow the comment written by “anonymous “ to appear in the comments below section.
It was a flattering comment saying that anonymous had enjoyed reading the blog. Thank you anonymous.
I have not written anything in this blog for several years now, but this made me return to the blog and I read a few posts and comments that peole had left. It was an emotional experience. I had forgotten how much writing this blog, and finding that there were others who were experiencing UC, and that they interacted with me, and gave me warmth and courage.
I want to thank you all for that. It was really important to me.
After I had surgery and my colon was removed I trained as a hypnotherapist, as you may know if you have read the last few posts.
I qualified in 2011 with a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Certificate. I have been working my private practice into my life ever since. I have met some extraordinary people with some really big challenges, and I have learned a lot. About people, and about myself. I would never have had that experience if I had not got ill with UC.
I think it is interesting that the thing that I feared so much has brought so much of value and worth into my life. So if you are suffering from something that strikes fear into you, and that brings you down. Don’t forget that at the bottom of this pile of shit there may just be some gold.
If you are interested, you can visit my hypnotherapy website here, where you will find amongst other stuff some videos of people talking about their experience of hynotherapy with me.
So again, thank you all for reading, commenting, and helping me in those bad old days.
Have a happy 2018
