Even though I’ve been writing this Blog for quite a while, I always kept it Anonymous.
I decided to finally “come out” in a sense. I’m getting some pieces published now, so I might as well!
So, Hi. My name is Ruth Kavanagh. My father always called me Ruthie K, so you can call me Ruthie too.
I have been very quiet about this Blog. Even some of my closest friends don’t know about it. It felt more comfortable just being some anonymous brain cancer blogger. I really pour out my heart and soul here.
To open up like this has not been easy. As I’m laying in bed typing this I’m questioning whether I should have remained anonymous. Will everyone judge me? Will friends see me differently? Will I ostracize myself with my raw words?
Yet this is me – the good, the bad, the ugly.
