Flashback. Though we got an official diagnosis on March 8, 2012, it comes after several nerve-wracking phone calls and an escalating series of doctor visits. We were hesitant to share what was happing, given the constant hope that nothing was happening, but it was definitely a challenge given our usual habit of oversharing. The only signs we’d shared publicly (which did not go unnoticed by some friends) were a distinct uptick in geolocation app checkins at medical facilities. I think this March 2 checkin and photo on Path is probably the first digital artifact of this experience.
