We are Better Together!
I was able to attend my first Philly symposium over the weekend. It is always fun to get to connect with FAmily and meet people in person that you only had known virtually up to that point.
I get emotional and overwhelmed with gratitude being in a room full of people who are on the same journey that my family and I are on. When I am at home, I can get bogged down and have the misconception that no one can really understand what we go through on a daily basis.
At FA events, I am reminded that we are not alone! We are part of a strong support system of other FAmilies, doctors, researchers, and FARA who are all there for us. I am so grateful!
How do you feel when you attend FA events? If you haven’t attended one yet, would you like to?
