Did you know that February 29 is Rare Disease Day? It’s also Jay Faulkner’s birthday. Jay is a family man, editor, and friend who allowed me to do a guest post on his blog to raise rare disease awareness. I’ll actually have a few posts there through the month, since my family and I seem to constantly hit the rare disease jackpot. Williams Syndrome? Check. Alobar holoprosencephaly? Check check. Postpartum eclampsia? My doctor’s didn’t even know it existed, but check check check. Don’t worry, I’m not posting about that. 😉
This post is a chapter from the memoir that I’m writing about our journey with Williams Syndrome. Jay wrote a delightful intro that made me laugh out loud. It explains our cosmic bromance (I was also called an alpha male this week, too. I think I need to wear more ruffles). While you’re there, read all about Jay and how he discovered that he, too, had something physical to cope with. You’d never know it, because he’s such a happy, enjoyable man. It takes real strength to admit when you need help, and Jay took the plunge to do so. Please swing by and read Let It Fall.
