Inertia is the property of matter by which it retains its state of rest or its velocity along a straight line so long as it is not acted upon by an external force. It’s that external force that’s such a bitch.
I started this blog in 2006 because I wanted to write more and I wanted people to pay attention to me. In 2008, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and I got a lot of attention. So much attention that it seemed most prudent to blog about it. In its peak, Inertia had hundreds of followers and I'm still a little flabbergasted (and grateful) that I had so many "fans" cheering me on while I struggled through 2 years of treatment. Since achieving remission in January 2010, I've managed to create a pretty awesome post-cancer life and I am grateful every single day for all the gifts I've been given. While I no longer feel the need to seek out attention (thank you, Cancer) I do remember how much I liked reading other cancer blogs when I was going through treatment. I'm leaving up Inertia: The Cancer Years for general consumption. I really hope my story/experiences are of use to you.
