Mighty Mito Mom's

Sometimes I am still amazed at this new network of people I have met and grown to care about - many without ever physically meeting.

One fellow mito mom and I started talking at least a year ago - comparing notes and supporting each other. Her daughter is a teenager. Recently this special person sent me the book - "Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar"

I was able to start reading it the other weekend during a college friends girls trip to the lake for some rest and relaxation (which I really enjoyed!) It's a collection of "dear Abby" type columns, but about some serious crazy stuff.

I realized I couldn't read it in one sitting, but rather have enjoyed reading one or two in the evening and thinking about what it means or how it could apply to our lives.

I highly recommend the book - no matter what your life challenge is, the auther Cheryl Strayed aka Sugar, has a sharp sense of humor, quick to the point and just has a great perspective.

Thank you to my east coast mito mom for your support and generosity - I will be paying it forward to another mighty mito mom just as soon as I'm done reading!


  1. Thanks for the recommendation- it sounds great. Will definitely have to get it to read!

  2. I've been following some of the mito blogs, and I am awed at how parents and loved ones of mito children (kids similar to me as a kid) are using the web to support each other. I wish this had been available for me and my mom when I was a kid (back in the 1980s and early '90s).

    I was a kid with mito and am on a ventilator still, and now am old, one of the oldest survivors of childhood mito probably... I would like to be a part of your network too!
