Taking a Deep Breath

Thank you for the outpouring of support yesterday.  I'm so lucky to have the greatest readers in the world.  I really appreciate the kind words and encouragement.  I'm sorry I didn't get back to each of you individually.  Normally I would try to; I'm just a little overwhelmed right now.

That being said, I really wasn't up to writing a post for today.  It feels like my universe just shifted and I'm still reeling.  I'm taking the day off to pull myself together, wrap my brain around my new reality and take a few deep breaths.  I am fine, and I will continue to be fine ….  I just need a couple days to retreat into my shell and mentally refocus.  

My parents are in town (visiting from Oregon) this weekend.  It will be nice to have family time with them.  

Thank you again for all the support.  Hugs and smooches to each and every one of you.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I'll be back on Monday.

    Enjoy your family time. It is so good to sit with your parents and catch up. Well, for me anyway. I hope it’s the same with you.
    PS I just read yesterday’s post (I’ve also had a day off). Don’t forget to BREATHE.

    Good – take the time off, visit with your folks and regroup and refocus. You deserve it.
    When you get a moment, though, I’ve got something for you over at my place.

    you are more than fine- you are a rockstar, i adore you, and i’ve never even shaken your hand 🙂 you deserve a weekend to accept, acknowledge, and take on the challenge of life… there’s always going to be something that flips your reality upside down. i’m glad that you can breathe and say, for today, i am fine, and i will be better tomorrow. your strength encourages.

    Just remember that, no matter what, you are still breathing! And in the end, that is all that matters.
    Enjoy your weekend 🙂

    You are the role model in strenght I am using to keep John’s spirits up. Permanent disability is only as scary as you let those 2 words be. Maybe you can shift it to be permanently unique. Cuz you are unique and it’s why I come back to your blog day after day. Don’t you dare give up my friend. John needs to know that someone has gone through much worse than him and can still maintain a sense of humor.
    And you know what? Maybe you’r meant to be a PT lifer so you can TORCHER THE TORTURER!!

    BIiiiiiggggggggggggg huggggggg. You deal with your disability with grace and dignity. And I don’t know how I’d live if you ever stopped going to The Torturer because then we wouldn’t get to hear all about The Moaner and all the other great stories you have. I mean I do hope you can stop going someday but I’m gonna miss that. LOL
