Brilliant (or so I thought), full of hope, healthy and uninterrupted.

Even though I was struggling with self-esteem, I was confident in my work; confident in who I was. I knew where I was heading. Switchbacks and roadblocks never derailed me. Unafraid of doctors or life.

Forgetfulness was never an issue.

Or fear, or exhaustion, or living life with wild abandon.

Revealing what I thought and felt was an articulate, intellectual experience; not emotional.

Eating whatever I wanted and, because I was running six miles a day, I maintained a healthy weight.
