Thank you, Lou, for starting this thread. I wondered about posting in yours, but it didn't seem appropriate.
I know we've had little contact, but I read so much of what you write to Lou
... And in everything you say, you strike me as a loving and caring person if ever there was one.
You deserve care and support just like any one of us. We all have phases when we can give a lot, others when we are giving and taking and when we're in a really bad place it ends up being more taking for a bit. And that's okay, because it does all equal out.
It is hard to go through what you're going through all alone, but I understand your need to get away from it all, even if only for a few days. But it is good to know that there are people who care about you and are here to listen if and when you're ready.
I hope you find somewhere where you feel safe and can regain some strength. Please look after yourself! Take care" Sending you comfort and hugs! xxx
