The one day that I don't read the NYTimes there's a UC article! :)
I'm in the same place--in remission, but always worried about when I'll flare next.
You wrote this article, right? I liked the lines "Afraid to believe in something so ephemeral as remission, reluctant to trust this coquettish sweetness called normalcy," "It’s a contract scribbled on a rain cloud," and "Like a mama bird, he is gently nudging me out of the nest. He wants me to fly away."
How does one become a contributer to a newspaper or magazine? I've always wondered about that.
