Wow, MJ -- this response blows me away! It's brave of you, too, to share your story -- I'm so sorry for all of the health challenges you've struggled with and I know the pain of feeling like you have to give up on something you've cared about in order to be healthy.
I'll tell you, though, I've been hearing from more and more people who have had similar experiences to us. I just want people who've been in this situation to know that they're not alone and that there's zero shame in it.
Thanks so much for reaching out.
