Thank you so much for reading and giving me green hearts and saying all these nice things! As you say, “It truly helps to know you are not alone.”
This period of my life has been such a challenge, so unexpectedly difficult, and one of the only helpful things has been the voices of others in the same boat. I really don’t know why many women are reluctant to talk about it, but I think (and hope) it’s changing. Women’s issues, in general, have received precious little meaningful attention, but it’s high time we shouted about it! So many of us have similar experiences, we should be sharing and comforting and commiserating.
Good luck finding your way through this hellscape — a sense of humor helps!
