I can't write much right now - too much going on for me to be coherent.

I'm okay though. I did tell my mom and it went as well as I expected. I haven't had time to process any of it though. As soon as I do have some time, I will come back and fill you all in. (writing helps me to figure out my thoughts.)

Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement.

you have all my support and encouragement.

and jeanne...


I don't like to say this because of how one-sided it can sound but I feel like...well, as a fellow survivor then...you make me so proud. I am so honored to be in your group. Your family of fighters, as it were.

Here for you, when you can. Take the time and space you need.


Carla said...

Thank you for YOU.

Glad you survived. My ears (and eyes!) are always ready.

em, ae, carla, eve, sarah, faith, hayley, carrie -

Thank you for your thoughts, support, encouragement!

I'm completely compartmentalizing everything - I have to in order to give support to others in my life who need me to take care of them right now. Compartmentalizing (and the subsequent squashing down of the more emotional tidbits - like my mom's reaction and mine) is the only way I can cope at the moment.

I will be back when things have settled down more. I am thinking of each of you...

I get compartmentalizing.

It's called making it, right? I mean, sometimes it's the only way to hold it all together, and you want to be somewhere really safe when you let it all fall apart. You want to make sure the pieces don't hit anyone you care about.

We'll be here.

wow...I didn't realize it's been so long until I saw the date of this post.

jeanne, I'm here to say I hope you're okay, that you're taking care of yourself. even when we have to "manage" or compartmentalize, those are ideally temporary.

you are strong enough to handle letting it all out, if you haven't gotten to yet. and also, you know what's best for you, obvi, so much better than I do.

please let us know if we can help.

Worried...can you just let me know you're okay, Love?
