Hi Moreorless. I love it. In a lot of ways I can apply this directly to my own situation in life. In a way, my own petri dish still has enough secrecy, silence and judgement to keep the shame and associated negative feelings alive, but enough empathy and support to keep it from growing exponentially and overwhelming me. Either way, I can relate, totally. Peace,

Ken
