Despite my frustration, I am told I am doing well. It is important that I put things into perspective. I can now carry on a conversation and speak in full sentences. Most nights, I sleep through the night. I can now take naps, whereas before I was too agitated and restless. I am now able to read whole books and sit and write for hours at a time. Financially, I am holding my head above water by myself. I am able to hold a job and get up each morning. I am a single mother and I am able to feed, shelter and clothe my youngest who is still at home. Asking for help and delegating responsibility has never been a problem for me. I am able to hold onto a few dreams that my husband and I had together. I guess all this is progress. I am grateful for all the loving thoughts coming my way.
