    I’m so glad you’ve been able to move past the crushing part of this diagnosis, Arpita!

    I think it is all-too-easy to let a diagnosis become who you are or who you think someone else is. I am not diabetes. It is one thing that affects how I live my life, but it is not who I am.

    Our son is not Down syndrome. This is something I’ve already posted about on my blog. He is a human being. We have to recognize these things about ourselves just as much as we strive to acknowledge that other people are not their diseases, disabilities, etc.

    I look forward to news of your pregnancy, though I know you have some steps to take before you get there. Congrats on this news, late as it may be.

    I appreciate this honest, heartfelt post. Through embracing the deepest truths about yourself you acknowledge that diagnosis is just that – a label for experience. Beautiful. 🙂
