We had no power in the village for several hours today (cutting trees near power lines) so no internet and - (possibly) more importantly - no heating. Was getting really cold when it came on again about 2pm. Yet again was struck by how much we depend on electricity for so many tasks these days.
I was very moved by DD's posting last night. I get the impression that several of us on this forum have been to that dark place ourselves.
Well done on getting yourself to that meeting today DD - we know it wasn't easy - but what a really positive outcome. Accept all the help you can whenever and wherever it is offered. Yours is a very normal and natural reaction to events which have been building over a very long time. Be kind to yourself and, for now, concentrate on tiny dolly steps rather than giant strides. Hope your doctor is kind and understanding and can provide you with some support - whether it be medication, counselling or just a sympathetic ear. Very best wishes to you and Charlie. x
