Good afternoon all!..
Yesterday, I made my report to the detective handling my case and when he left, I was alone. In my soul, my spirit felt vanquished and I needed comfort. That is how I found AS. In need of much support, and realizing I cannot walk nor survive alone, I am reaching out. Creativity has always been an outlet for me, but I have been self-medicating and swallowed by depression since the event happened three weeks ago. Something has been triggered within me to reach out and ask for others to walk me through this valley of despair that has consumed me.
I understand that it is not my fault. That my pain is not uncommon. Within me, I can comprehend all of the adages that apply to this struggle. But I need to reconcile my own voice by hearing the healthy coping skills of others. Does that make sense?
I am waiting for the advocates and detective to return to my home today to finish the process. When the door close behind them, know that I will be reaching out Thank you for being a resource.
