Don’t be deceived.
A couple of people have said to me in e-mail something like, “You seem to be doing really well!” Don’t be deceived. I don’t sit down at my computer to write until I’m pretty composed. I have to have some amount of concentration to write. When my head is wandering or I’m sad, I’m not writing e-mails or posting to this blog. If you call me or come visit, I’ll eventually cry in your ear or on your shoulder.
Writing and talking, though, helps a lot. Troy practically forced me to start this blog so I would write about this experience and help myself work through my feelings. It does help. He knows me almost as well as I know me.
