What a terrible time you’ve been through Kathy! Sorry to hear that. Having so many people pass away within a short time would be devastating!

It can’t help much that you’ve been taken off estrogen after 20 years either! Anyone would feel like Jekyll and Hyde if they’d been through what you have.

Agree our society seems to encourage us to just keep going and going and going… wanting more, doing more, having more.

But wow, that is such progress to be so aware of who you really are. And it sounds like taking the the time to release all the pain has helped you — although it was pretty crap at the time.

You sound stronger for all the pain you’ve let yourself feel. Don’t judge yourself for any of it. Be gentle to yourself Kathy! :) Through your writing, I can already hear you’re already inspired, happier, and looking forward to the next stage of your life.

What an honour to have you share this deeply personal experience with me. It mean so much. You are so courageous and inspiring. Thank you!

Lots of love and light to you beautiful Kathy!

Touch base and let me know how you’re going ok? I’d love to know. xx
