I’ve already sort of posted about this, but… I still can’t figure out how/why meeting other kids (and adults, for that matter) with Moebius didn’t make a huge impact on me as a young child. I was eight or nine when I first met people with Moebius and I don’t remember a thing about it! Literally nothing. And I was a relatively astute child, so I can’t figure out why it wasn’t memorable enough to warrant at least registering in my long-term memory. It’s weird. I was actually really paranoid that I was, I don’t know, suppressing some kind of trauma, so I checked with my therapist… she remembers it the same way. My friends who came to the Moebius community later in life describe these kind of watershed experiences discovering a community, and I guess I was just lucky enough that it was kind of built-in for me since I came to the community as a child. I think the current generations of kids with Moebius are going to even be more connected to each other, which is wonderful.
And if you haven’t seen it, there is a Moebius Friends group on Facebook that now has weekly chat sessions at 9 EST / 7 CST / 6 PST. Come join the conversation!
