I sort of let the comments build up while I was....I don't know, accepting things? Anyway, I try to be good about answering people, so I'm just going to do it in one big post. Also I'm going to adress some things in blogs. Comments first.
Like I said in the last post, thank you, thank you for caring about me and encouraging me and telling me I'll be okay. This is the strangest thing I've ever dealt with, and the most frightening. Knowing that you care is immeasurably comforting.
Pete, thank you for the offer of help...at this point I'm really not sure what to do myself, let alone direct people. I hope you're staying safe, though, because from your most recent blog entry it sounds like you've got it a lot worse than I do.
Thage, I appreciate the sentiment and I really, really hope you're right. Some kind of shield, physical or mental, would be fantastic right now.
Darby, I've been following your blog too and I'm really, really glad you're ok. And I'm definately with you- I can't even describe how relieved I am not to have seen it. Or how scared I am of when/if I do.
Scott, thanks for talking to me too...I hope the bat is enough to buy me some time at least. And from your blog...god, I really, really hope you're ok.
Now about the blogs:
I'm following a lot of people, although I don't think it shows up on the "following" section because I've been doing it anonymously. I see what you're doing. So I'm going to try to comment a bit more because I know how much it helps me to know that people are paying attention, and I want to try to help you all, even if it's in the smallest possible way.
