While starting to write our story, we realized the value in depicting both of our viewpoints. We will continue to blog our different perspectives as we feel this might aid those dealing with chronic illness as well as those who support them.
Just so you know we are real people . . . here is a little bit about us. We are both from a small town in Western Montana, but currently reside in the greater Seattle area. Ryan works in the software industry and is on a mission to experience life to the fullest. During the rough times of this journey, Maribeth worked as an executive assistant. She has since taken some time of self exploration and as a result completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training and currently manages a yoga studio. We have two beautiful children and a rambunctious mini golden-doodle.
Here is the timeline depicting our story.
