I might try. But I find "him" stuff or "us" stuff so hard to bring up. Even in writing. It's very threatening for me. A lot of my drawings feature him and ... I haven't even been able to finish this sentence. I was trying to say how bad it was to give them to him, but I can't even describe how bad it is.

Finding comfort in things is such a personal experience. What you find comforting, I may not. I kind of think it's something you need to experiment with and find for yourself.

I also find I don't really get any comfort from myself. I've tried nurturing myself by alternating writing with my dominant and non-dominant hands, but my child side closes up and tells me to go away. My adult side gets too easily distracted and hurts me more by not staying engaged.

I know I should try it some more, but *sigh*, nurturing really doesn't come to me very easily at all.
