Yes, thank you newberry for sharing your story, so that others may be helped.
Being there for each other is such a blessing.
You are right about the worrying quote. Pre-fretting about something that may or may not happen only stresses us out.
The World Is My Oyster!
Newberry, thank you for sharing your story - we all benefit from your honesty. Sharing is an exceptional healer - what a triumphant outcome!!
This is the first time I'm reading this. I'm SO glad you're alright. It's sometimes difficult to figure out if what one feels is "nothing" or "something". And yes, survival is key. The smartest thing in certain situations is to tolerate the intolerable just to get on the other side of it and then heal and continue living.
Sending you big hugs.
Newberry--I was deeply touched by your sharing this story. It is so relevant to us and in the times that we live in. I only hope that sharing these stories will help our daughters. Thank you again.
