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!

Edit Reason: PS
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
