Exactly two years ago, starting at around this time of day, my brain tried to strangle me. Thankfully, Julia stopped that from happening and ever since that day she, and all of you, my family & friends, have helped me navigate the tricky world that I live in now. I’ve had many humiliating and humbling setbacks; financial, physical, psychological, professional and emotional. Although I progress, there’s still a very long way to go to be back where I want to be, and it’s daunting at times. But on this day, the anniversary of my downfall, I give thanks that I’m alive at all, and still have so much that I want to live for, and so many people that I love.

  1. Jamie, it was very nice seeing you a few months ago in San Jose. I know you’ve fought very hard to get to where you are now, and I know that you’ll continue to do so. There’s too much life in those eyes of yours for me to say otherwise!

    My best wishes to you in the New Year!
