we need all the help we can get, I'm not in the least bit ashamed to admit that as a survivor.
But we can be so unpredictable. One minute we're appreciative then the next we want to be alone and angry. At least this is how was / am.
It's a balancing act that I guess you wont get right every time. My wife didn't, but I must say she's getting better
Don't beat yourself up if your support seems to be rejected, if 10% gets through it's worth every bit of effort.
In my heart I now appreciate every scrap of effort everyone made with me. It's taken time for me to realise this, and I've pissed people I love off on the way, but our support means everything to us.
