This has been a very long time! I am so sorry. I haven’t really been able to do much this past year because last July my Mother started having some serious problems. Of course, I can hardly take care of myself, then my Mom wound up in the hospital for two weeks, then in a nursing home for three, then to my house for three-and-a-half months for rehab. Between all of this, plus the sale of her house and getting her into assisted living(with no family support whatsoever mind you) I have been busy, exhausted and extremely stressed.
Anyway, now to catch up. Not all has been so bad in spite of what I have written above. Between Christmas and New Years,’ I got a phone call from a company saying that my book had been recommened for a film! Three production companies they partner with were very interested in it. One was even a definite yes. So, as I write this, a screenwriter is writing the initial draft for my book! I have waited sooo long for this. It is still so surreal to me though. I’m still pinching myself and wondering did this really happen? Things like this don’t happen to girls like me. When I think about what a wallflower I was in high school, I can hardly believe I’m going to be well known one day.
This is such a thrill. People will finally know the truth about CFS/ME and be able to get the help they need and deserve. It is going to be a feature film, a film in the theatre. That really makes me happy. When I pitched it several years ago out in LA, I only really expected it to be considered for a movie of the week; I didn’t really expect it to be considered at all. Just goes to show you you never know!
Well, gotta go now. I just wanted to touch base and let you know what whas happening. I will keep everyone up to date as things progress.
Love and hugs to all!
