thanks so much to everyone who took the time to read yesterday's long, emotional, hot ass mess of a post ;) i don't know what came over me - y'all know i'm not usually such a debby downer.
but as a few of you pointed out, YAY for the lurkers! de-lurking is de-lovely. i knew i had a handful of regular readers, and from the traffic on the site, i could see that others were reading too. so it was really fabulous to read such nice, supportive words from folks who hadn't commented before, or don't do so on a regular basis.
and i do truly appreciate hearing from you all - especially those who have stories similar to mine. as trish pointed out, it IS nice to know that i'm not some freak who's alone in my situation. no, i'm just a freak. ha!
and if you're a lurker who hasn't had a chance to comment, i'd love to hear from you - even if it's just a "hi" or "you're a nut". well, okay, maybe i would prefer something positive. :)
