One year ago today...

August 11th 2009 I was lost. It was nothing for me to cry at the drop of a dime. NOBODY understood. I was ALONE. Trekking like a zombie through the motions of a new life. At this point D had altered my life for 9 months and 21 days. Seems like more than enough time to get over it wouldn't you say? I think I can speak for many D moms when I say... 9 months is just not enough time. Not even a year and 9 months is enough time; especially when you try and go through it alone.

Let me rephrase... I had Anthony here, my kids, family. But they do not understand like WE do. They don't have the constant fear of failure.

Skipping ahead...

August 11th 2010. I am a different person. Yes, I do still have those days when I cry, but they are less common than they use to be.

So what's changed??

The simple answer is that I have added some VERY SPECIAL people into my life. People I can turn to and rely on. They do not judge me when I make a mistake... OH NO NO!! Quite the opposite... they encourage... they lift... they make you strong. THEY.GET.IT!!

And just because...

I am glad I have some great friends to make me...


Now I proudly...


and EVERYDAY...

All because D-moms around the world united...

OK...I had to do a "re-take" on the "honeymoon hand-job" - OMG now that is some funny stuff sistah!!! Also, I am a big fan of "making sugar my biatch"...

DITTO on your post. I am finally (4 years into this) back to my old gregarious self. I lost me for a LONG time. I think just getting my feelings out on Beta Buddies and knowing you guys read it and get it means the world to me. It is the cheapest therapy I know of. Love ya girl.

yep this is the best place to be in my opinion cause you all always come through for me and I know I have not been around alot cause my son has been going through some stuff and now all I do is worry about them . Oh well that is what we are supposed to do .

I love the DOC too. You and the rest of the DOC community are such blessings to me. And encouragement that I will get me back. Someday.

Thank you, Lora. I needed that encouragement today. I pray that one year from now, I am following in your shoes.

I'm going to do my best to make sure it happens. I don't want to stay in this "sad" place.
