Who I am

   I have Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome.  It tried to destroy me, it couldn't.  It tried to break my spirit, not gonna happen.  It tried to kill me, but I am still here.  It took away my ability to work and provide for my family, but I still have love.  It tried to take away my identity, but I know who I am.  I am a Daddy.  I am a Husband.  I am an artist.  I am a friend.  I love the outdoors.  I am alive.
               I have CAPS, but it does not have me.


  1. This is really beautiful, Richard. I really admire your strength and resiliance!!

  2. Way to be strong, positive, and raise awareness, Richard.
    Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left. ~Hubert Humphrey
