okay. on second thought, i cannot let the importance of what you've shared go.
though i really expected you to find my original posts boring, it felt pretty good to just get some of that stuff out there.
but how i felt writing all that is nothing compared to how completely and utterly touched i am by what you've posted in return.
so i wanted to create a space just for what you've shared so far, and for any of you who might want to share more now.
so i will cut & paste some of your stories into the comments section of this post, and invite you to please add your own stuff if you feel like it.
i mean, it's so oddly and sadly comforting to know there are so many of you out there who can relate.
i feel like it makes us all friends. if ever-so-slightly invisible.
