    Amelia… this quote is from Al-Anon, but it made me think of you and the place you are in now, struggling for answers and change…
    “that’s why it’s not possible to power through the steps in the
    space of a few weeks. It’s a gradual process. Coming to understand and
    forgive ourselves for the choices we made when we were not as strong and
    not as well informed as we are now is a really important piece of the
    puzzle.”

    Maybe you are doing exactly what you need to be doing right now and things will move when they move? I feel like I kinda said that before, and that it is frustrating when you need relief, but no process works overnight… I’m not religious, but I do believe we all need enough ‘faith’ in something to have the patience we need to endure… Maybe the immediate task is to keep doing what you are doing and look for ways to find that faith and patience in the interim? For some people it is the Higher Power route, but I think it can be as simple as better self-care and gentleness while you heal…

    Anyway, this made me think of you, CS
