Hi Coral,

Thank you. Yes, I've continued my therapy all these years, and it's a great help now.

I'm doing better than I was last week when I first posted. Some "healthy" dissociation finally kicked in to protect me from the raw shock and panic and all that. I'm trying to get out and do something every day--nothing big, just something to have a goal outside my home no matter how small the goal is. And the past 3 days, I've managed to have daily social outings with supportive friends. Two meals out, and one silly, funny movie (Get Smart) which I enjoyed a lot.

Yesterday, my social "event" was dinner with a friend with whom I used to work (she still works for the same organization but had transferred worksites a few years ago) whom I hadn't spent time with in a long time, although we both had good intentions to get together. I really like her and we worked so well together, plus we have a past connection from when we were much younger. And she shared some sad personal news that got me out of my own worries for a bit. But it wasn't like a total misery-fest or anything. Thankfully, despite what she's going through she is doing pretty well--I think she seemed like a good role model for me in that she seems to have good perspective, is coping well--but genuinely so, not a fake kind of "I'm fine" kind of thing--honest about it being hard, etc. but still keeping things in perspective.
