Cheryl, I think you’ve done amazingly well with your writing considering everything you’re coping with this year. I hope the mini vacations to the mountains will bring you clarity and peace.
Jeanne, I’m so glad you got everything worked out. Sometimes family can be our salvation or damnation. In my case, I had to distance myself from everyone. At 17, I moved 800 miles away. It took years for me to accept that they were never going to change, but I didn’t have to be part of their disaster. Things got much better after that.
Hugs to you all.
w/a Merit Fynn
