Some people blog every day, even more than once. I go through spurts.
As I have mentioned, blogging has brought out the emotions in me during this most current painful phase that we are in. That is part of the reason why I blog, as it is a great way to process things, to get my feelings out, to find people who can empathize or relate with me and any of the situations I write about. I also do it to bring awareness of the complexities of loving someone with FASD.
Sometimes, when I don't blog, it isn't because of emotions related to a particular situation. Sometimes, I am just feeling swamped and don't put the time into it. But I do love it when my blog friends wonder how I am doing if I am silent, and even get worried. I love this because it shows what a caring community we have created in our mini-blog network. I get it. I have blog buds who I worry about if they are silent. One that usually blogs every day, hasn't blogged since a hard post and I am praying for her.
When we first started this FASD journey, I was seeking a support group, a real life one. Couldn't find one. There are ones now, and I go sometimes. But I was able to get my need met in many ways, through this blog and through all of your support.
I am doing much better each day since Akila has been gone. She has been gone 12 days. It still sucks. It still hurts. But it feels right. I do appreciate all of the emails I have received, the emails that have been sent, the real mail that has been sent. You are all so thoughtful. So kind. So loving. It is amazing. I am truly blessed.
