Tamar, my friends are in, big time. But this isn't a short process. It isn't like having a sick baby where someone can hang around, make meals, do laundry, take care of things off and on for a couple of weeks. It's been going on for years, all this crap and upheaval I've gone through in therapy. Luckily, I am a somewhat interesting, amusing person, and I have some good friends, and a husband who loves me enough to put up with all my crap.

My friends and I go for coffee, talk on the phone, dine, walk, shop and play together. My closest friend is a social worker, my next closest friend is a therapist. They understand. I have support. And I use the support I have, too. It's just - I can't take advantage of them, either.

Yes, I am a little confused. On the one hand, I don't want to burn anyone out, I think I need to be my own warm socks, but I know I need the connections too. Oh, gizzards, I just can't think about it anymore right now. I am going to heat the curry I made last night. Feed the family, and watch a new Turkish film, and hope for sanity.

Thanks very much, Tamar. I really will call my friends for help on the worst of days. I need to do that.
