Why not me?

Some people appear baffled when I say that I am lucky. They expect me to bemoan my health challenges with "Why me?" I have never seen myself as a victim, even as a young girl with severe ulcerative colitis, and then an ostomy, I thought "Why not me?"

This attitude persisted into adulthood when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and then Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. 

Now, in my 50's, living a vibrant life, I have decided to share my stories and just completed my memoir. Will I get published? I'm not sure, but "Why not me?"
