My dear friends and fellow bloggers..

Today I want to dedicate this post to a fellow blogger. Her name is Epasen and she lives in Finland. Her blog is named Living with Sclero.

I would like to begin by saying that there are very few people in this world who have the capacity to touch you deep down and actually stay there. In my case, Epasen is one of them. I never thought that blogging could bring me close to such wonderful people. I first read her blog after she left a comment for my piece on dance. She said we were very similar as individuals but I think that she is a much stronger human being than I can ever be. I didn't know the meaning of sclero till the time I read her blog and googled scleroderma. I was moved beyond words after reading her first post itself. I just knew I had to follow her blog.

About scleroderma-
Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disease characterised by hardening in the skin and other organs. There are 2 types- local and systemic. The local type known as MORPHEA although disabling tends not to be fatal while the systemic type can be fatal. This form affects the internal organs along with the skin.

This young lady has accepted sclero as a part of her life and the way she is living with it is commendable. To believe in the best and be positive at all times is the mark of an extremely strong individual. She goes on inspite of everything and unlike the most of us, she brings out the best in her life and doesn't look at sclero from a negative point of view. I am truly inspired by her and always will be. Our problems seem so trivial when I read her posts and I feel as though I have no right to sit and crib ever. She makes me feel like getting up and doing the best in life. Not just sit and crib over what I don't have.

People, I would recommend all of you to read her blog. She has touched me and moved me and I want all of you to see what a strong woman she is.

Three cheers for you Epasen my dear!

Lots of love

That was a beautiful tribute to a blogging buddy. We are so lucky to meet people like her (and you) in the blog world. It opens our minds and our hearts in a way that has not been possible until now. Now, I'm off to visit her..

Deboshree darling,

I was so moved when I read your post, honestly. This is the best response I could ever get to anything I do: someone who expresses what she/he feels about things that I do. You're an amazing girl and I always have smile on my face when I see that you've updated your blog. :) We'll keep on touch love.
