Newly discovered word......We

I've never been a big sharer of personal information. I don't volunteer a whole heck of a lot. But in the past 3 weeks that sure has changed. And what's interesting is that I'm not my typical uncomfortable self with this whole sharing thing. And what's also a new thing for me, I use "we" a bunch, as opposed to "I". I don't say I had treatment. I say we had treatment. Leslie goes with me to every appointment, which is good, cause I'll often tune out the doctor once I hear that one thing I can glom onto and then I dissect every aspect of that one thing. So I need to think in terms of we. It's a subtle shift in thinking. And I think even this blog is a manifestation of we. We in this case being anyone who reads it. There is a we in winning and a we in tiger blood. Duh!

    Leslie is awesome. :)
