I’m so sorry you’re having an awful time. I am too. Hate this illness with all my might. Sending you hugs and tons of positive energy! 🍀💐🍀💐 Kitt O'Malley July 29, 2017 at 3:49 pm - Reply Thank you. Hugs right back at you. twentysomethingtenacity November 7, 2016 at 11:27 am - Reply Sometimes I feel as if I’ve got spider web cracks all along my skin and the slightest unrest will shatter me to pieces. It’s knowing that others can relate that keeps me together, I think. I truly hope that you have something that keeps you together on the hard days. Kitt O'Malley November 8, 2016 at 11:57 am - Reply Beautiful metaphor. bpnurse November 2, 2016 at 12:35 am - Reply Many good thought and hugs coming your way, Kitt. I hope your load will be lighter soon. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:13 pm - Reply Thank you. Me, too. Paladin November 1, 2016 at 6:14 pm - Reply Even though I am grateful for the showers this past weekend, I have had similar feelings, Kitt. Took a swim this afternoon and feel much better. Am able to provide you the following advice: a) The supreme council has given you a thumbs up. You will not be sacrificed. b) Sent my son-in-law a 50th B-card with a simple message “You’ll get over it”. c) Got a thought for the day quote in one of my e-mails: “Faith does not make things easy, it makes them possible”. That’s it. Hope any or all of this advice will help get you back together. As always, God Bless + Namaste. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:10 pm - Reply Thank you. Yes, it is not easy, but it is possible – with faith. Guess I’m needing more faith. Viv@Grief Happens November 1, 2016 at 4:59 pm - Reply Good…not goos. What. A. Day. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:08 pm - Reply I understood. Thank you for the good goos thoughts, love, and prayers. I send the same to you.

Not saying you won’t break….just saying not a thousand…AND i hope you hold together. ~~dru~~ Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:06 pm - Reply Me, too.
