To the One

DeAnn Ferguson
Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease

It is writing, journaling, streams of thought scribbled on paper over the years that brought comfort and encouragement during the times I couldn’t make sense of, or find the spoken words for experiences. Writing supported me when brain fog took thoughts almost as quickly as they appeared. Pen and paper were the first to know what I was going through….the ones who listened and wrote without judgment, receiving every word. Writing reminded me that me and my body are one, and helped me learn how to come alongside myself to break the sometimes friend sometimes foe relationship I had with my body due to illness. I release this expression in honor of each of us along the illness-wellness continuum who has at some point been The One. Blessings!
