I guess they can't hear the people in my head

In church, we have a "good news minute". That's the time where anybody who has good news can quickly shout it out and share. I almost never share any good news. I have many reasons for this, not the least of which is because I doubt "Hey, I got my pantry organized. GO ME!" is anybody's idea of good news. And I don't like to monopolize the time. I've been told in the past that I talk too much, so I lately I have tried to tone it down. To not talk about myself so much. To be the type of person where people say, "Wow, you're a really good listener." That's not something I hear very often. Talker, yes. I'm amazing. I can talk your ear off. Listening is something I need to really work on. But I participated in the good news minute when I got accepted into the HALT PKD study. I felt it was good news, and it was bigger than just having found the perfect cleaning product that gets grease off my microwave. And I was surprised when, not long thereafter, I got an email from a friend who expressed her deep concern about my health, not having known that I have a life threatening genetic disease that makes my kidneys look like moldy footballs. Not long after that, I was chatting with a friend about healthcare. Her husband and my husband have the same employer, and we were comparing health plans and talking costs and FSA (whatever they are--is that a real thing?)and I mentioned offhand that we pay out of pocket quite a bit each year with all my appointments, and that it's ridiculous that I have a $35 co-pay to see my nephrologist. She gave me a weird look and said, "Why are you going to the nephro whatever so much? What are your issues?" I was genuinely surprised she didn't know. I told her about my PKD. She said, "I didn't know you had a kidney disease. You've never talked about it before." I haven't? Really? I THINK about it all the time--how can I not be TALKING about it all the time? So I guess it's good that I'm not talking about it as much as I'm thinking about it. It could also mean that I think I'm talking about it because I'm answering some crazy voices in my head and not actually communicating with real people ever. Yeah, that can't be good.

No, not at all. In fact, I meant to post it on my PKD site, and didn't realize until I posted it that I had signed on to this one (it still comes up on my blogger dashboard when I post on my PKD blogspot blog.) When I realized I did it, I was just too lazy to delete it. Surprised anybody is reading, though. Thanks!

Dear Sisters,
I hope that I will reach some of you and that I will have your support as I take action into my plan. As some of you know I am just a teacher, with a big heart and love for children. I recently wrote a novel: The Black Parade: The Phantom Series. Some of you may have already seen it on my facebook. It’s an adult total chick lit urban fantasy novel written to capture the mind of those willing to laugh out loud, tremble a little, and possibly even cry. My whole purpose in posting this, is so will go to my web site: www.thephantomseries.com and help me raise money for St. Jude. I am trying to raise $5000 by December. So, please help my cause and go to my site or check out The Black Parade on facebook. I hope to hear your comments and I know you will enjoy the read, because it is totally for us Mormon moms who need some clean fantasy in our lives.

It seems good to share good news with others.
