I’ll admit, this year I’ve suffered more psychological blows than most. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a bad dream.
I’m used to coping through laughing, analyzing, and complaining with girlfriends, but I don’t currently have those kinds of deep female friendships in my life. The blog helps, but there’s nothing quite like people who really know you.
Without that safety valve, I sometimes feel like I’m in a vise, and the pressure just gets tighter and tighter.
