Hi Michele, I am so glad that you visited my blog. What a wonderful refuge you have here. I am busy reading all of your posts, albeit with a few tears. Not sad tears, just a few drops of gratitude for feeling understood. I am going to read everything. I have come so far in my healing, and I can honestly say that my life has opened up and changed for the better because of all that I have conquered. Still, I have this one thing, this block that broadsides me at times and makes me still feel vulnerable to be outside alone. I just can't explain it, nor can I logic mt way out of it when it arises. I go to my bed, regressing into a state where I can block out all of the external stimuli that is triggering my panic. It still causes a lot of confusion in my friends and family, because most of the time I seem so "normal." My husband and kids are wonderful, but I resist making new friends in this new place because I feel that I will eventually let them down because of this. I really worried about letting it all hang out on a "decorating" blog, but came to the conclusion that I will not be shackled by misinformation and ignorance. Please keep reading me, and I will definitely be listening to you.
