Kevin, everyone, thanks for the support and your words of kindness/encouragement.

I still have difficulties internalizing compliments. I'll be trying to get my head around to the thought that I'm strong.

I've done a lot of reflecting over the past few days. I'm staying with my parental units for about four weeks. I'm pretty sure I'll be damaged, but I'm also certain I won't be broken. As long as I don't lose myself - awareness of what I need, want, believe in, feel, think - then I think I can endure. I'm going to remind myself that the world isn't about to end.

On a lighter note. Huskies are bred to endure hardships and freezing cold weather. They're also pack animals. Thanks everyone. smile

hey husky
I just now got the chance to read your post ((( husky)))I know the feeling well. when there are no more words nothing you can say.and then the blood. you are so much more man. no matter how it feels or what is said you are more than what has happened and worth more. your journal moved me man I know the frustration of trying to be something someone else wants. just know you are not that little boy now. you can begin to find yourself and be that good and excellent man you were born to be.
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.

Hey, Husky.

Back for a moment from my holiday visits, I had a chance to read your painful post-poem.

What is most powerful to me is your courage in letting it out of your journal. Not so much as in the sharing, albeit a brave act itself, but in your own ability to reflect on that period in your life. For me, there are many terror-stricken situations to reflect on. When I am able to "go there" from a place of greater safety, it feels like a sign of progress.

The realization of the "gap" is perhaps the most striking example of this. Everyday I fear that I might come to know more of them, and it keeps me isolated and afraid.

Hope you will find some time to keep celebrating yourself.

Lose the drama; life is a poem.

Concerned Husky,

Courage +50
Vulnerability +50
Honesty +50

Truly a heroic combination.

Getting over it, that takes the work
