Tom Hickey, of Cork Ireland, on his personal blog in a post titled Stop feeling sorry and start living:

I write a blog that’s mainly about my life coming to terms with facial disfigurement. I wanted to share my pain, hopes and dreams, and show you that despite so many setbacks I managed to come out the other side. I’m not perfect, not even close, but I love my life now. Before I met my wife Trish I wouldn’t have said that.
I have been humbled by the reaction to my blog posts. I never realised so many people would get so much from my writing and my experiences, so I’m truly delighted you care to read my posts and respond. It gives me the encouragement I need to keep writing, and to be more open and honest about my experiences. In some small way I hope it helps others.

Tom’s blog is inspirational to all of us and his lessons apply to far more than only those with facial disfigurement. Good on ya Tom.
