I have been deluged with e-mails from people who read my last post and wanted to tell me that I wasn't alone, that something similar had happened to them when they were young. And I noted that several of the comments noted the same thing.
It made me wonder. I'm curious. Is this something common to many of us? So...a request. And please feel free to comment anonymously. Did something like this shape your childhood too? If it's too painful, don't touch it. But, if you can...I'd be interested to know just how many of us are out there. Maybe it was like me...a near miss of an awful ending. Or something similar, but not really that close. As I said...I am thinking that there may be a lot of us out here. Care to share? No need to give grisly details, I don't want to put anyone through anything traumatic, but...judging from the response I got to this post...I am thinking that this is not as uncommon an occurrence as most people believe.
I'm listening. Well..reading anyway.
