I couldn’t disagree more.
I had a pretty traumatic day on Tuesday. I went home alone, tired, shaky, emotional.
But I wasn’t alone. For me, the online community has been a godsend, ready with comforting words and good wishes. Some came from people I already knew, some from people I met through social media, and others from people I have yet to meet, but would very much like to.
Imagine the same scenario just a few years ago. I’d be going home alone, fears swirling through my mind, facing a long evening of torment and worry.
Without wanting to sound too dramatic, the support I had made all the difference. Even yesterday morning as I was waiting for news about my mum, I had lovely messages on my Twitter timeline.
So where am I going with this? Really, just a quick post to say a huge Thank You. You all picked me up and I am beyond grateful.
The good news is that my mum was discharged from hospital last night. My blog has taken a distinctly depressing turn this week, but it’s not a real blog if I’m not honest. In other news, I will be trademarking the Stress Diet (TM). Not to be recommended, but boy, it sure does give results. In celebration, I have bought myself a rather large bar of chocolate.
