In Support

Today’s post is in support of a fellow blogger. She blogs at Life on Peanut Layne and she recently wrote a very brave and honest piece explaining her recent and continuing absence from blogging. She’s struggled for a very long time and has just, finally, been diagnosed with a very rare Autoimmune disorder. In her absence, many of us who’ve been lucky enough to have been amused by her for so long are going to try to keep her blog from sitting idle. So in the spirit of "putting my money where my mouth is" (yum), I’m up first. Click on this link: Life on Peanut Layne and come see what this picture is all about:

Get well quick, Peanut Layne. And in the meantime, we’ve got your back.

    1. I agree, Irish. Sometimes it's just a matter of doing something small, but it makes a difference.

    1. Thanks Chrissy. If you want to help, write a piece that you think might be a good fit for her blog and email it to me. I'm keeping them in a file and, as she's ready for one, sending them in the order that I get them.

      Yes, Behcet's sounds horrendous. I don't know how she's functioned so long without the correct treatment, but I'm so glad she's finally on the right path.

  8. I just went over and read your post and hers about the disease. I think I can't believe it! Poor Peanut Lane! I hope she feels better soon! And you...! You are just .... a wonderful friend! I'm so glad I've had the chance to meet you even through the net! I wish I could help, too. But I can't write stories, you've read my posts! I just don't think I have the 'fluency' (language barrier!) for something like that! How about I send you something sort of funny (that's not mine)?

    1. Thank you for all your kind words, Vicky. Unfortunately I can't take something that's not yours, but you write beautifully about your kids and I'd love a story about them if you can think of one to tell.

  9. Karen, I just visited your post. It's fantastic and your concern and care for your friends is so evident. I can't thank you enough for "sending" me to peanut lane. I've never shared in my space my own struggle w autoimmune disorders - hashimoto's diease, atrophic gastritis and most recently - rheumatoid arthritis. My endo is set to test me for Lupus after struggle w chronic soars in my mouth and nose for the past few months..thanks to your friends honesty and insight I think I should explore Behcet's as well. Wishing you all the best! M
