Thank you for sharing your story! Everyone's path looks different and it's amazing what you've achieved while battling a chronic condition and bringing a new human into this world. I also love that you highlighted that it's ok to have multiple interests -- sometimes people get the impression that tech professionals are not interested in anything except code, and that's such a false narrative. Some of the best devs I know care about social issues, the environment, and have really time consuming non-tech hobbies on the side. Thank you for mentioning this as well!
