Margie, I'm sending a truckload of hugs your way today. Thank you for your honesty and for sharing this dark story. I do believe that shared experiences like these are healing for the sharer and incredibly helpful for others who may not yet be able to share theirs. Meanwhile, I'm reaching for the tissue box. Thank you, Margie. You are the bravest woman I know! :D
