I don't always show up so pretty in the light.
But really, I'm just beginning to crack the ice on women who write and talk about what it is like, and its just heartbreaking to recognize how isolated I have been feeling. Maybe its the legalese involved, the desire to protect kids, the wide-ranging experience of something dying, which never really ends... but I don't know anyone else going through this, not well enough to talk with... its been terrible.
but i've slowly been uncovering, and discovering women who write about it, and are living it, and getting through it... and i'm really relieved. so very relieved.
It feels really wonderful to be connected to the world, even if its through a windowpane. so good.
I'll share some of what I'm reading eventually, but I thought I'd just drop you a line ...
