When I’m on walks around my neighborhood, I usually listen to music on my iPod. Many times, songs spark an idea for a blog post that usually centers around an emotion, a lesson, an idea centered around Huntington’s disease (HD) and my family.
The song by U2, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, resonates in my soul. It’s a song about searching for meaning. Bono says, “And to me, the most interesting thing about it is that you don’t find it. It’s about the search.”
The life experiences I’ve had with Huntington’s disease (HD) has sent me on a restless search for meaning and understanding of why this horrific disease devastated the (Cahoon) Marin family; my three (3) sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia, Cindy, and mother-in-law, Phyllis Marin died from HD complications. What is Huntington’s disease
I still haven’t figured it out and it weighs heavy on my heart, but I’ve come to accept that I’m supposed to keep searching, which continuously fuels my passion to help in the fight against Huntington’s disease. I’m the chair for the HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate. HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate
Maybe, the end to my search will be when I see Lora, Marcia and Cindy again. I can always HOPE.
