    3 babies! Glad to hear that everything went well and that they are being well looked after.

    Okay, Sandy, breathe.

    Hi Sandy, I’m so glad I found your site! It feels so good to find others who can relate.
    I have just begun my own blog about my own personal journey with my mental illness. I feel the more of people that speak out and share, maybe we can help squash some of those misconceptions about mental health.
    I look forward to reading your posts!

      Hi Leisanne…

      I just had a look at your wonderful blog, leisannesart and I left a lengthy comment, sort of…
      The point is, I’m so happy you found me and I found you. I simply love your art and I’m thrilled to be able to subscribe.
      Also, as you will be able to tell, we have a great deal in common and a great deal to share.
      Especially that blasted “good-enough” problem. 😉
      Anyway, thank you for commenting here and I’ll be watching.
      All the best on your new venture. It’s lovely to find a “sister under the skin” … we definitely speak the same language.

    Hi Sheila…

    So kind of you to write and thank you immeasurably for letting our community know that I’m a bit “mad” right now with stress and pressure. End of term, pregnant Lucy, pressures from family for various things, concerns about my health about which I will write when I’m ready to… it’s very mental health related, but a little new and raw and I have to deal with it first with Dr. Bob.

    Haven’t seen him in more than 10 days and must wait until Friday. He got angry at me this week for the first time in 20 years and practically hung up on me.

    THAT, was traumatizing, trust me.

    Why do new problems keep cropping up?

    New layers of the onion?

    Surprising layers?

    I will share, as I learn and get to know them, myself.

    Things are moving very fast, though. All my years of therapy certainly accelerate the process of healing but it involves pain, let me tell you.

    Puppies are doing well. Lucy is gaining weight and producing wonderful milk for them.

    I’ll post pictures of them in my next post at three and a half days old. They will be six days old tonight.
