After I posted, rather, reached out last night, my daughter swooped into the computer chair. I was tired and went,again, to my bed, where my big ol' dog Deigo was snoozing. I snuggled up beside him and 'hung on'.
I made it through the night - and today I awoke to cooler weather and a broader realization that I am not alone while going through this.
Reaching out is often terrifying. My worst fear? That no one would notice. I am, again, overwelmed by arms and hearts reaching back.
I'm still tired, and I have a doctor's appointment to go to. I will try to reply later on as I have a bus to catch.
I believe I made it through the night because I knew that by following the cardinal rule of reaching out - and reaching out HERE, I'd be held in some way.
I have come to adore all of you so much -
