Welcome back, Shannon
I kept checking different threads and such to see if you had responded to anything since January. I was so pleased to see your post once again.
I am sorry that you need to see a Dr., but soooo glad that you are!
We all step into a different world when a loved one is gone or when life deals us a bad set of cards, but we need to keep in touch with those around us who care as part of a reality check.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
I often think what a bazaare set of circumstances have put us all in contact, making it feel like family. “Family” is first in my book, no matter what family it is.
Take care, stay in touch.
