I know you can't read this, but I am truly sad you are gone. I liked you. I liked the advice you gave people. You and I have had a couple conversations that meant the world to me. May you be flying with the Angels.

I understand. It can be very overwhelming. It got overwhelming for me because I wasn't getting any help from my husband. He had turned to alcohol for awhile and would crash in his Man Cave all the time. I was doing all the parenting, and while sick myself. I had cancer, I had surgeries, I have arthritis real bad and Fibro. So all of that was way too much. She was there and very encouraging. 

Quoting Anonymous 37:

I'm only in my 30s and had to battle sepsis in the hospital while pregnant. I was getting treated, but I kept vomiting up my antibiotics because I was pregnant. I was treated in the hospital for two weeks. I went from thinking I was going to die or lose my baby to being able to go home for a couple days, and then I had to go back to the hospital for the rest of my recovery because of still being unable to keep down my antibiotics. And, yeah. I was 33. And my living conditions were certainly not dirty.I do think she must have had a weaker immune system than we knew, though. She had a really sweet heart, though. I agree with those that talk about looking out for her comments and having to remind myself she's gone. Her effect on my life was tangential at best, but the loss of her seems so direct.I was in an "at my wit's end" point. I have a son on the spectrum. His hold on language isn't his strongest point, and it was even worse a couple years back. I was feeling panicked because he was to strong and mobile and I had to watch him like a hawk because he didn't listen what so ever. She was so nice to me. When I probably didn't deserve it, because I wasn't saying the nicest things about my son. She told me that no is probably the most confusing word to a guy like my son. That sometimes it means to get out of the bag of flour, and sometimes it means to stay next to me while we're walking through the parking lot, sometimes it means so on and so forth. I'd actually had people tell me to talk to him using words that tell him what I want him to do instead of what I don't want him to do. I'd taken parenting classes at Yale on how to work with him. But her words made the whole thing so accessible to me. Instead of chasing him around, like a crazy no-yelling lady, I could tell him what I did want him to do.I'm sure this sounds stupid. It meant a lot to me, though. "No is probably the most confusing word. It means so many different things."

She’ll never know how much she helped me. I was almost suicidal and her words helped me pull myself out. A lot of you women are truly special ladies. It almost makes me think I can dig myself out of this hole.

You definitely can. There is always a way. If I can do it, you can too.

You can. I've had my days in the last few years of thinking that I can't go on, sometimes still do, but I'm here. One day at a time.
