From a fan... #mtla

During WWII, the British had posters to help people deal with the bombing raids from Germany (the blitz). ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ - this poster was to issue it only upon the invasion of Britain by Germany. As this never happened, the poster was never officially seen by the public. Sadly no record remains of the unknown Civil Servant who originally came up with the simple and quintessential Britishness of the Keep Calm and Carry On message. However, since then, this poster has inspired a whole slew of copycats, including this one from my Unicorn Sister! I just had to share...

Thank you!! You definitely make yours look AWESOME!

Prayers for my Unicorn Sister

I've just gotten some terrible news about my Unicorn Sister. She's been given the diagnosis of Dercum's Disease, one of the worst of the worst. And in combination with the pituitary disease we already have, this is a show-stopper. Though she has a reason for all her pain and fatigue (which for a while has been far worse than mine), her weight gain, everything.... it was ALL the disease.... The prognosis is NOT good. No known treatment. A miracle away from a cure. And it can be lethal. Please, please keep her in your prayers to whatever deity you believe in, or even if you don't.... put out a good word to the Universe for her. She needs it.
