I Did a Thing

Reddit hosts sessions with celebrities, where you can ask them literally anything. They did one with the CEO of the company I work for, they did one with Jackson Galaxy of My Cat From Hell, allll kinds of people. But really anyone can do one, based on a life experience (I climbed Mt. Everest) or who you are/what you do for a living (I work in cryogenics) that makes you special. A good friend’s wife is recently going off of her epilepsy meds after 22 years; she hosted a session. It inspired me to do one of my own, so I invited total strangers to ask me anything:

IamA Newly Diagnosed Person with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. AMA! from IAmA

Overall, I had some really great questions, so so so much encouragement, and I learned about some new research. It gave me the courage to go through with making this blog public after all.

  1. Vashti, your AMA finally got me to check out Reddit. I know, where have I been? I guess I needed something that truly interested me to finally get me there! I’m in awe of your honesty and courage here. I can’t stop reading and learning and hoping and knowing that you’re going to change my world. In the future I’d love to support any efforts you undertake that need a volunteer or two. I don’t have a lot of money, but I can give you my time if you ever need it.

    1. I’m so happy that you finally took the plunge! 😀 Reddit will take as much of your time as you give it. I’m incredibly flattered to be the thing that finally got you going, and I’m very grateful to you for your proffered help and encouragement. <3 I only hope to live up to your praise.
