Writing my most recent post was a lot harder than probably any other post I've written. Not only was I worried about reactions to the news, but that perhaps I wouldn't express my thoughts accurately enough -that my words would be misunderstood.
Now that my words and story are out there, all I can say is thank you. Thank you for the warm embrace I felt after exposing a very personal and difficult part of my life. I have felt nothing but kindness and love from each comment/hug/chat/drop-by/message (whether from someone I know or anonymous). I mentioned in the post that I'm doing much better than I thought I would, but of course all of this is still very hard. So, again, thank you so so much. Can I just take you all out for donuts?
Also, something I really didn't expect, I have received a few private messages from people going through somewhat-similar situations asking for advice. I feel incredibly unqualified in this department. I'm totally fine discussing what some of our struggles were, but please keep in mind, every relationship is unique. Something that was incredibly hard for us to overcome may not pertain to someone else's relationship (does that make sense?). On a related note, if you're having a hard time and just want to talk, I'm all for chatting:)
