Sarcoidosis Awareness

I am hesitant to make a big deal of this, but many of you have asked, so here goes.
Over the years of blogging there have been mentions of a chronic illness that I have. In the interest of education, I will tell you that I have sarcoidosis. Never heard of it? That's not surprising as it is a rare disease.
Thankfully, I have not had severe or rapid progression of the disease although I have been told it has been present in my lungs and brain. At times of flares, I have difficulty walking, or am unable to walk without help; brain fog, and extreme fatigue. One of the most difficult problems associated with chronic illness is that I often look and sound "just fine" in spite of my disability.
