    What now? part 2

    It's late, can't sleep. Just rambing, trying to put some thoughts in order. I can't believe it's been 4 months since Ferd died. It feels like I haven't seen him in forever, like it's been so much longer. And then I think it's only been 4 months, that's why this still feels so raw. I'm back at...

    A Place to Speak My Truths

    That is what this forum is to me. I am happy for any constructive, supportive things I can do for others but I honestly just love how I can say what I mean here about my own life. People ask me how Brian is, bless their hearts. I appreciate it, and I say he is okay/stable. I may change that to...
