I can’t express how much your notes, emails, texts, messages, love, support and prayers have meant to me this past week. Joe printed everything out and brought them to me in the hospital. Every night it was like a surge of encouragement to work hard and keep going.

My meds are still being fine-tuned. I’m a little up and down. I occasionally get a wave of hopelessness that dissipates in a few minutes, but the lithium is definitely making a difference.

I’m not quite ready to jump back into regular life, but I am sticking a few toes in.

I would be dead if it wasn’t for Joe. He saved my life and continues to do so. He’s gentle and sincere and kind and loving and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have him as a partner in life.

I’m still processing everything that’s happened. I’ll write more next week.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  1. Well, in that case, as grateful as we are for your continued recovery– we are that much or more grateful for JOE. Being a constant supporter and lover and cheerleader and all around awesome human is a tough job. So, I hope that he receives at least some of the same energy and love from the little measure of love we manage to communicate electronically. BIG LOVE to you both.


  2. I’m so glad you’re feeling a bit better and more hopeful. Joe does indeed sound like a keeper. Continued good wishes to you. 🙂

  3. Big hugs isn’t enough to send you. I wish there was more I could do but I know you are strong and fighting this and have a hero by your side and many loved ones in your universe. xoxo

  4. I pop in here from time to time and usually lurk. De-lurking today, after popping by, to send goodwill to both Leah and Joe. Take care, both of you. Light and peace to you.
