I have to apologize to anyone reading my blog and sending me emails. I have not answered emails in 3 months. I do not know when I will be able to start responding. I have taken an unexpected break from my blog and email due to health and personal issues. I do not know when or if I will return to blogging. Apologies to all.

I have taken a very long break, but I have not disappeared. I know my page has gone missing from MTHFRsupport.com, but they have promised to get it back up as soon as they can. I'm working on getting my own website up and running. I have some kinks to work out so I'm not sure when that will be ready. I've also been doing a writing project on the side and will share that with you soon. I've been expanding my horizons with social media and recently opened a Twitter account for those who are unaware: https://twitter.com/SurvivingMTHFR
I hope everyone who reads my blog finds the information useful. I really hope I am helping others with MTHFR and raising awareness. Thank you for reading!

I am a Pulmonary Embolism survivor. One in three people will die from these deadly clots. Once you develop a clot you are more likely to develop more in the future. Know your family history and test for genetic mutations. My whole family recently did testing through 23andme.com and found out my mother, father and both of my brothers all have a variation of MTHFR. Be aware of your risks and find out what measures you can take to prevent blood clots in your future.

Follow this lovely lady's page. Her twin sister passed from a Pulmonary Embolism and she has dedicated her time to raising awareness. She posts a "clot fact of the day": https://www.facebook.com/ForeverDeborah?fref=ts

After my ER fiasco last week I've been incredibly exhausted. I can't seem to find the time to post as much as I would like. I hope my readers can forgive me. I'm still going to doctors appointments and trying to find answers to why I'm still short of breath. I'm falling behind on my emails and I haven't been able to work on new blogs. I'm hoping I can catch up soon. Be patient with me!
