"Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom, not a guide by which to live." Robert F. Kennedy
I like that about the nerve desensitizing. I know that the more that I do, the easier things become. It is just getting going that is the problem.
I am glad that you had such a good visit with your doctor and that your parents got involved. Now they know what you are going through. Or at least have an idea.
So you picked out your gifts and wrapped them? Are you going to act suprised when you open them?
Christi, I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas tomorrow. We had our Christmas on Saturday with the grandkids. And my granddaughter had to sit next to me. Reminded me of you and your grandmother. I got her the littlest pet shop and she loved it. I will get her the whole collection eventually. Her birthday is in February so she will get more then.
Take care my friend.
