The Morning After

Now that the dawn of a new day has come, how do I feel? The desperation I felt when I wrote that post last night has eased, but the fear and worry continue. I’m uncertain what today will bring. I only hope that it’s nothing bad, because I couldn’t stand that.

Last night I did cry – a lot, for hours – and I did take a sleeping tablet. I couldn’t face a second sleepless night. I needed to sleep. And sleep I did. Deep, dreamless, peaceful. After eight hours of freedom, I now feel stronger and hopefully will be able to face this day. However, my shoulders are already carrying a huge load and I don’t want anything else added to that load. Please don’t add anything else to that load.

  1. Karen, I’m sorry that your very hard road is taking still more difficult twists and turns. This is certainly a time of great challenge for your family; I’m sure no-one is quite themselves. I hope you are getting through your day okay.

  2. I managed to get through the day, Sherry. Now I’m struggling with another day. This one is a bit easier than the last two, so I think I’ll survive.

    Thank you for your concern.
