The most frequent question I get :”Is she still in denial?” The word Denial has a negative connotation, for me any way. I am a very “reality -based” kind of person. I call it like I see it. And remember, it’s difficult for me to “see things” from the perspective of someone else. (a constant “working on it”; A work in progress.)
I’m not an expert, (but I might become one, when all is said and done.) but this “lack of insight” or “denial” has a name: anosagnosia. This is a great article I just ran across that explains it easier than I can pronounce anosagnosia: http://newoldage.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/01/22/when-they-dont-know-they-are-ill/ .
Hopefully, for those of you “following” me along the “Yellow brick road”, this article will give you some insight, like it did me.
Thanks for being here.

Oh my gosh Rhonda. My heart goes out to you! Remember you have strength and support from those that love you both!
I look forward to BC more than I ever have! Yes, I want the “bikini body”, ( I can still dream!) but more importantly (especially MWF) I look forward to seeing my friends.
Thanks for being there, and I know it and feel it.
Not a hooked on phonics gal, but let’s practice!
Wow that was a very sad but enlightening article. Thanks for sharing.
Look forward to seeing you soon 🙂
