I’m sorry to hear this Kevin, but I completely understand. I greatly appreciate the way you reached out and made me feel at home on Medium. You did it when I was just starting out here and I really needed the nudge you gave me. You encouraged me to work through my mom’s illness — you encouraged me to write from my heart.

Before your encouragement I wouldn’t have had the guts to share so deeply. Some of my writing felt like a diary and my husband even joked about it being like diarrhea — he thought it might be too much. I now see that the writing has to come from these deeper places.

We are all connected, and if I am feeling some way, chances are pretty good I’m not alone. I am glad we’ve connected here. Are your stories now all on ‘Real True Story?’ I want to make sure I follow and support you. I wish you all the best.
