From Emily, Thank you

Thanks to everyone who supported me last night when I felt so bad. I am ok now, I am feeling a lot stronger, I am sorry if I upset anyone, or made anyone feel uncomfortable with talk of suicide and being depressed.
Sometimes I forgot and I know they are hard things to talk about and sometimes people arent in a place to talk about that stuff. Bcause sometimes I am not either.
anyway I had a good sunday. I am going to talk with our therapist eileen in the morning. I know she’ll help. She always does.
I been reading the secret garden and watching netflix. I been watching disney plus also. I love Icarly, austin and ally, and jesse.
We also took a nap this afternoon, cuz we was up early so we got tired.
Naps are good!
butterfly hugs,
love, emily xoxo

  1. I’m so glad you’re feeling better today than yesterday. Please don’t feel like you need to apologise for going through a tough time and needing support. I know I’m new to your life journey but I am going to make an assumption here. My guess is that most, if not all of your followers, fit neatly into one of 2 groups (basically), either they are survivors or they are just caring people who enjoy your writing and feel a vested interest in helping you get through the tough times as well as enjoying the good times with you.
    I see our blogs as kind of a group therapy. If that’s the case, we are all going to have good and not so good days. On the good days we are able to give hugs and support. On the not so good days, we are the ones getting the hugs and support.
    I started to say I’m not trying to tell you what to do but it pretty much looks like I am so I won’t disrespect you by saying I’m not. What I’m really trying to say is that I know from personal experience, the little ones and the bigger ones all need a safe place where they don’t have to apologise for existing. Part of that “existing” means we’re going to have good and bad days and it’s okay.
    I’m sorry if I’m sounding pushy and please know that if you feel like I am being that way, it’s okay to tell me how you feel. I won’t get upset. That’s one great thing about aging – you tend to realize that other people have a right to not like every idea you have and it’s not personal.
    I’m so sorry. I am all over the map on that response! I ended up getting a total of 1 hour of sleep in the last 24. I’m going to get my milk and cookies and go hang out in my corner until my brain cells wake up!
    Love and hugs to all

    1. I didn’t think you were being pushy or telling me what to do, I just thought you were giving me advice which I sometimes need, I will take all the advice I can get. How come you didn’t sleep? Do you have trouble sleeping a lot? We do. We don’t sleep that much at all. Sending you a big hug I hope you’re asleep by now or if not I hope you’re doing something calming that is helping you XOXO

  2. It’s good you were able to reach out, and let Liz and Jade help, when you were struggling. And I’m glad today is a better day. Listening and reading things that are soothing is a good coping mechanism on the rough days.
