Last night a miracle happened

Things are touch wood, & fingers & toes crossed improving. The relationship with my beloved parents seems so much better today. Sunday I was still struggling with depression but I managed to push myself out to meet a dear friend & go for a meal. I put my face on, found a nice floaty skirt to go out in the warm sun of a perfect summers day. My friend had seen me at my most vulnerable when her kind words in Nov 06 "how are you" triggered a panic attack & I ran out of the zoo in floods of tears. I was unrecognisable from the person I was way back then. Inside & out. She was amazed to finally meet Debbie. We share a passion for wildlife & both work as volunteers at our local zoo. We talked & talked. It did me the world of good.

Best of all was the change in my Dad. We are getting on so much better. Last night a miracle happened on his way to bed he said "Goodnight Debbie, I am sure things will work out alright in the end".


He has never ever used my name before. This was such a huge step for him to make. It was said with such genuine feeling.

There is hope in my heart today.

Dear Nicky
That hope is very much alive. I have loved bloging & find it very difficult to pull myself away from the keyboard sometimes. The kind support I have received has overwhelmed me. Its hard not to become addicted but I must begin to limit my postings here as I have so much more I want & need to do in my life now.
Thank you for being such a special friend.
