One thing that my HD journey has taught me is that people will love you even if you aren't perfect. They will still love me imperfections and all. They knew and loved me before the HD which means they will still love me despite my HD. It was a long road to get there. In the beginning of my diagnosis, I struggled with feeling different than every one around me and I felt embarrassed.  

Now I realize that no one is the same, and everyone must feel different at some point. I am no longer embarrassed, and feel more confident in myself each day. I have realized that people love me before HD and people still love me after. I have learned to embrace my imperfections. 

I am encouraging you to embrace your imperfections. What is some thing you feel different about- embrace it!!

As always thanks for reading- this space is my safe haven,
