No judgment here, either, Suze.

Love to you.

If you let the counselling office that you are feeling worse, they may have an earlier spot for you, Suze.

Others, some not as strong or determined as you, have come out of such things. You can, and I earnestly believe you will, if you and Nick get the best professional and counseling help possible. Skillful, experienced, caring climbers on the rope. Not just you and Nick. What you have been through and what you will learn will help not only yourselves but others. Have faith and go for it! We are here!

Suze and Nick So very sorry for what you both are going through! And good that you can be honest about what is happening. That's a critical first step. My sense is that you two have something very special and it will take work on both your parts, separately and together, to work this out so you can have a solid relationship.

I pretty much gave up last night, and decided this is way too hard for me.
Too much pain, too much damage and too much opposition for us to move forward here....but Nick doesn't believe in giving up. Not ever.

So I am going to try very hard to believe again.

I am no longer allowed to feed the squirrels, but I put some peanuts on the step and just watched them eat and play. They love this yard. It made me happy for a bit.

I think I mentioned that I am starting counselling at school?
Not sure.
I have an appt on Friday....and I am sure that it will be one of many. Or a few, anyway.

My chin is dragging the floor at this point.

I'm sorry, Suze. I'm feeling the same way this week as my kids are with their dad. My mom just sent me this so I thought I'd pass it along. Don't give up, dear friend, it always gets better.

((((((((dear Suze)))))))))

The season you are in is not the season where you will stay. Everything changes, good and bad, and this is no exception.

You have been through such tremendous changes in such a short time, even if it was smooth sailing I would expect there to be some turmoil and growing pains. I can't imagine the life changes you are going through. It might feel impossible but you are going to prevail. Maybe not today or tomorrow, or next week but you will prevail.

You have shown all of us your resilience and perseverance. We know what you are made of even if you forget once in awhile.

I like the quote "when God closes a door, He opens another one, but it is h*ll in the hallway"

Maybe you are in the hallway now, but you are not gonna stay there.

I wish I could give you a real life hug, but, alas, my cyber hugs will have to suffice.
