Thank you everyone who read the post last week, or the one I wrote about a month ago, and reached out to me. Even if it was only to read it, and let me know that you're there, that you understand how I feel, or that you've felt something like it too.
This morning, the day dawned brighter than it has in a while. Something inside has shifted back for a bit. I can see clearly now. I can move through the days without choking on them. It may turn back to darkness before long, but for now, the sun is warm on the damp leaves and I can find peace.
I love you all.
I especially want to take a moment to thank my friend Andrea at Good Girl Gone Redneck for being so supportive. Especially for pointing me towards Band Back Together, where I've found a community of writers facing so many of the same things that I've been facing.
