A gigantic thank you

Just a short post from me tonight. You’ve probably heard enough this week already. But that’s what I want to talk about; how fantastic it was to be heard when I was in a lonely, cold place with nobody to talk to.

Writing about what was going on for me last week is one of the only things that helped make my inpatient stay tolerable. The staff weren’t interested in how I was, and my wife and friends could only visit between 4 and 8.

Outside of those times, I felt extremely isolated. But that horrible feeling was diminished by the fact that I had you lovely lot. Knowing you were reading gave me this sense of having an army at my back.

I want to say a MASSIVE thank you for that.

Thank you for hearing me, for leaving supportive comments, for your kind and encouraging emails (so sorry I haven’t replied to all of those yet – they did mean a lot to me).

You made me feel like someone was listening, someone cared, and someone could empathise with what I was going through. I always felt that this community was a great source of strength – and the past week really proved it.

    It’s amazing how much we can feel support from those all around us that we have never met. I hope you always remember that there are so many people who are rooting for you and want to support you.
