I'm just not sure that people can understand that haven't dealt with what we have (such as friends and coworkers) and it seems unprofessional and inappropriate to bring these issues up with the people we interact with daily.(offline)
I'm thankful for all the internet forums that I have been involved in. I am learning a lot from the social interaction both with negative and positive exchanges.
I'm learning I don't have to fight every battle or have the last word, and realizing that others have made that choice with me (blush)and I just didn't realize it.
Hopefully through all of it, I can become a better person and both offer support and as I have already and am so grateful for receive the support that I so desperately need with my husband.
I had a positive remark from a coworker who I do confide in. I just give her a blurb of the latest with my husband, and she actually said to me, "You're getting better." Wow as I think of that now-what an awesome compliment, and I have this support group to thank for that.
Thanks everybody. I hope I can give back what has been given to me.
