Man. It's weird. When I first read about Emma I was thinking, I know a couple of people who started that young. And there was a kind of strange feeling that came over me thinking "they are adults now." I don't know how to explain it. But it was kind of a time warp thing thinking about them so young and getting these hits. And knowing them now. But at 8? That's even sadder thinking of a kid that young with it. Even if you aren't a kid anymore. And now there's poor Emma. A 12 year old child now dealing as a child with the pain that we have come to live with, albeit, reluctantly. Just starting that scary journey that most of us forgot we took in the real depths of hell when we weren't used to the fact that we just have to accept our condition. Back when it was all new and scarier-then-it-is-now to us. It's just all so sad.
