It’s hard to believe it has been 23 years since we met. You arrived in a fierce and unforgettable manner. I went from having no clue who you were to having an alarming blood pressure reading of 160/140 mm Hg as a 10-year-old, and then being diagnosed with you. Wow, you wanted to be heard and you were, loud and clear. From that day forward, you have led me down a very unique path, one I wouldn’t wish on anyone, yet I’m okay with it. What other choice have you given me?
