As I started to read it, I was sure the emotions would well up and come pouring out. But they didn’t. In fact, I’m not really feeling anything. And I’m pretty sure that is not a good sign. The lack of emotion makes me wonder if I have actually made any progress. Or if I have slipped a bit lately…..But his story is mine, right down to the sleep patterns. There was just too much. I simply could not handle anymore. Period. I was done. And I’m still dealing with it – more than 15 years later……..
