I normally don’t do this. Just post a comment from a reader in plain site, making it content. Mostly because at some points in my life, sentiments similar to this one have been expressed, but they weren’t always felt–on my end. I felt this one today. Maybe because it’s what I needed to hear, or maybe because I believe in me, too. Either way, thank you.
I have this page bookmarked, and I have returned to it again and again over the last couple of months. I will again, I know – I wish it weren’t so, but I have to accept that it is going to take a long time to get through this. This? Exactly what you describe above [in your post titled, “Advice Is What You Want When You Already Know The Answer.”]
Stephanie, what you do is let me know that I am not alone – at a time when I feel so very alone, and terrified, that at times it seems I just can’t make it. You do the same for many others, I know (I have read not just many of your posts, but also many of the comments).
I adore you, applaud your honesty, and thank you. I actually don’t remember how I first found you at a time when I needed to hear you so much – I am just thankful I did. Serendipity maybe.”
I’m confident things will turn around for you, too. Just push on through it, girly. And in a way, as odd as it sounds, I’m always right here with you. I know that sounds… kinda creepy, but so many of you have helped me through, just by being on the other side of this white window. So, I’m listening (So not said in a Dr. Frasier Crane way). Or as one reader wrote to me while Lucas was in the hospital, “We’re keeping the light on.”
