I just really wanted to say thank you to everyone who talked to me today, had a conversation, just were chatty and nice today.
I wasn’t going to say anything but I think this is important to get out.
Today is the anniversary of my dad’s death. It’s a REALLY difficult day for me, even 11 years later. I didn’t sleep last night and usually on the anniversary, I spend the day curled up in bed or I get myself so messed out my head, so I don’t have to deal with the pain.
I know none of you knew this going in but talking to you, just watching the show, bonding, it helped me forget about things for most of the day. It was one of the better anniversaries of this day I’ve had. I couldn’t have done it without you all.
None of you knew but just being nice to me today was enough to keep me from doing something self-destructive. That is a big deal to me.
Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough.
