I’ve spent nearly all my time in the last several weeks dealing with one family crisis after another. Just when one fire gets put out, another seems to start. I’m quite good in crisis mode. I lived in it for the first year of my daughter’s life as she struggled for her life, while she had to endure numerous operations, and also while our schedules were almost entirely dictated by physicians’ schedules rather than our own. The last few weeks have made me very grateful for the 9 year reprieve. I’m good at this, but it sucks.
I’m ready to get off this roller coaster so i can live and write again. Calm waters.
