I'm sorry that work continues to be so difficult and hurtful.

Hugs from a child are the best!

Armee, I'm sorry you are experiencing such intense flashbacks night after night. What was done to you was not your fault in any way or for any reason.

Armee, Phil, San, Master of my sea, Sage, Thank you so much for your kind support. The sentiment of lifting a boulder off of me brought tears to my eyes.

I'm so grateful for your kindness and support.

I am trying to take life step by step. I've been working on resume and application, which is a very involved process. I am making progress. Needing to get a new job causes me a LOT of anxiety. Trying to do one part at a time.

Being home with husband is stressful. No drama, nothing is said, but I feel the stress. Yesterday family was here, so I was with him all day. I got through by taking xanax to make the pressure manageable.

This morning I worked on essay application questions. I feel good that I got the questions done. I still need to tweak my answers and have some people look it over, but it was a step. Trying not to go to. . . I also need to ______ and __________ and ________. . .

Now that my kids know that we are getting divorced, I told many of my friends. Most have been very compassionate and supportive.

I appreciate knowing that you are here and am so glad for your support. I'm sorry that I'm not able to read other posts too much. Just breathing is hard right now. I feel like I've been in an avalanche and I'm buried in boulders. Not only that, boulders keep falling. One step. Next step. Next step.

Thank you, everyone, for your kindness.

We told the kids (adults). I'm trying to take one step at a time.

Last week my husband told me he wants a divorce. That's all I can say right now.

I relate to wanting to write/not wanting to write.

Understand feeling upset that the district's email was about being defensive instead of supportive and helpful. I'm sorry they weren't supportive.

I can't come up with good words right now. Just want you to know that I am for you.

Thanks, Blueberry.  :grouphug: back to you.

Appreciate your understanding, Armee.

I did text my friend and briefly told her how I felt. She texted back and apologized. There may be more conversations to come. I sat somewhere else at church today.

It has been too long since I've been here and I need the peace. I'm enjoying staring into the fire, watching the dancing flames and hearing the gentle waves and the sound of the breeze rustling the leaves. Mostly, I'm enjoying conversation with friends. Beautiful.
