It has been a really rough year. I am sure it has been challenging for other people and families as well. The struggle is real and always has been. A few days, months, years. It doesn’t matter how short or long. Life is so very real. I know you realize this. You might even think “Thank you captain obvious”. LOL
I can’t seem to talk about the last year Lily and I have experienced without thinking that other people have suffered so much more. I need to just get over it and focus on myself. I have neglected myself. I am so focused on Lily and other people. I have been a paralegal for 16 years. I have a gift for public service and I love helping people. I utilize resources available to be an advocate for anyone and everyone.
Right now, in this time, I am going to take steps to work on my mental and physical health. I told my VA mental health doctor that I probably need therapy and then I thought about a blog. Get it all out little by little. It seems like a lot as it all started when I was 3. After all these years, I truly believe that the last year was absolutely the most intense time in my life.
