Welcome, Lauren Nicole!

Please join me in welcoming a new Acromegaly Blogger to the fold!

Lauren Nicole just started a new blog called The Life and Times of Lauren Nicole (love the URL:  Lauren had transsephenoidal surgery for a macroadenoma on her pituitary gland August 12, 2011, it sounds like it was a life changing event for her.  I'm really excited about hearing more about her acromegaly experience and journey!

Nicole, I hope you find that writing about your experience with acromegaly is therapeutic and insightful for you.  As time goes on, you'll be able to look back and see how far you've come, and how much you've changed inside and out!

In turn, I hope that someone who is looking for inspiration, support, or understanding will find your blog and feel better about their own acromegaly.  Keep writing!
