Everyday, I question what it is exactly that I am supposed to learn from the things I am experiencing, even as we speak. It seems to be a constant ongoing epiphany. I can't have suffered the things I have suffered, for it all to be for naught. Four years ago, I was a typical middle class suburbanite housewife, living in "Leave It To Beaverland", and totally oblivious to the real world around me. All that came to a screeching halt, just days prior to the "end of the world", and the beginning of the new millenium: the year, 2000. Of course, the majority of the world awoke that fateful morning, and found that little had changed in their lives. For me, everything had changed. And nothing would ever be the same, again. My husband of almost thirteen years had skipped town, three days before, and the horror of what was to come was just beginning to dawn on that New Year's Day. And it was just the beginning. I spent the next seven months, just trying to survive and take care of my children. I believe the aftermath, has been that we are all still trying to make sense of what happened, and wondering if we will ever be whole again. To say that our world shattered would be an understatement. And suffice it to say... almost four years later, and we are all still trying to survive and just make it to the end of the tunnel, where we have heard there is light.

Hang in there
I know a bit of what you're going through. My mom has been through the same. Hang in there and keep writing this thing out. You'll find a gem in there somewhere.

Take care, you~
I feel for you and wish you the strength to seek and retain the energy you deserve as well as need. As much as things don't make sense, I agree with a.k.a.Sas up there, to hang in and allow yourself to keep writing it out. It works wonders in releasing and expressing what is almost too difficult to put into words. Peace and blessings to you all. Namaste~
