Alison .. . . sound's like you're in good tears re good people????
I had the 'same' experience re someone who just did something nice . . . just nice . .
and my yucky landlord just smiled at me and said good to see you so it's amazing when we're on overload what nice things can do to bring on those tears we need.
I can't pretend to know what you're going thru re your loss except to give you a hug . . .
over the net . .
and on to my bleeeeeeeeehhhhhhh
marriage counseling and my husband and I hit the 'cycle of violence' have a new marriage counselor who asked me why I am not leaving my husband . . . not sure if I'm angry at that ? or not . .
in the heat of the moment my husband said he would hurl me across the room if I acted out of line . . . I know he does not mean that but it's not ok . . . and I guess this counselor is worried . . . making sure we are ok . . .
granted we've only seen her once and as I type it I see where she is coming . .
If I were her I'd say the same . .
We need to have tools to talk to each other constructively instead of throw threats around, combine that with 4 ill parents . .
computers . . . travel time to a marriage counselor , accupuncture and trying to take care of myself as well . . . .
Goodness I needed that!
p.s. I'm OK physically mentally/ emotionally having a very hard time . . . and I am reaching out for help.
