There is a lot of joy in knowing that your blog post resonated with someone and even better, was of some use.
This morning I was surprised to see a mail from a person asking about treatment for lockjaw. His father, 77, had developed lockjaw after some dental treatment and was feeling ill and depressed. So he’d been surfing , found a post of mine on my old blog and wrote to me to ask for more details.
I called and we chatted. I passed on details of the treatment I’d had and hopefully, some reassurance. When one is ill, hope matters a great deal. And talking to someone who has been through the same things does help.
I told him that I was happy to know that my blog had been of some use to someone . Sometimes I doubt that very much. And he said, No, I look up blogs for so many things. They are so useful.
