Ok, that's for starters. Your kindness runs so deep, my friend. And I can't thank you enough in words how much you have touched my heart. That thread you started for me meant the world when I really needed that hug!! That really showed your character.
I hope you didn't injure yourself more (and I have a hunch you didn't) but like Char, I'm glad you took that trip. To do something you love, and something that may be a significant part of your future. I hope you retain vivid memories of everything while you move through these next few months or longer.
But now it is time to take care of business and get the medical help you need, especially while you've got your health benefits. And maybe as you go through this to begin talking with a good therapist (I am not saying you're crazy!!) to help you make the best decisions for your future. Things like whether you should keep pushing yourself in that job, or what your other options are. And do all that in the context of changing hormone levels, thyroid issues, depression, etc. that you struggle with.
You are a good man. A kind spirit. Take it a step at a time, holding your dreams in your mind as you go.
More hugs for Pete!
p.s. I'm not sure if I'm going to add any more to the "hug" thread you started for me - it seems so appropriate for you to both start and end it! Thanks again!!
