oh - such a relief!
so good that you are still with us - and have support and hope!
sorry - i'm lapsing into Enlish teacher mode here -
yesterday i taught this in Brit Lit class - and thought of you:
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
- John Donne
i was really feeling that loss - the fear that you were gone. and feeling diminished by it.
thank you for struggling through this - and overcoming the "demons" of darkness!
PS - just as your death would have been a loss for all of us,
your survival is a VICTORY for all of us!
