Puppy's self injury, again

I've been away

I know it's been a while since my last posting, and I apologize. I'm not even sure I know what happened that made me stop writing. I do know it wasn't one specific reason, but rather several things were going on at home and at work that simply created this overwhelming feeling within that made me take a few steps back and get myself reorganized, clear my thoughts, evaluate the present, and take hold of the roller coaster ride Puppy has been on and focus on "us" (Puppy and me).

I will admit that I missed writing. It serves as therapy for me to vent and to think through some of the experiences I write about. In fact, funny thing happened this weekend; my support group manager handed out composition notebooks to all the parents present. She and I had spoken earlier in the week and she noticed how I was unloading some of my worries and concerns on her and vice versa. So she asked for us to try keeping a journal by writing anything and everything we wanted, it could be private or to be shared at the next monthly meeting. I thought to myself, I already do this but having the notebook handy I did begin writing. I'm even thinking it might help me keep tabs on subjects or events that happen for posting whenever I can get to a computer. Like I said, I hope I can stop the roller coaster ride and maybe find a ride that takes us on a slow moving boat, calming all senses as we coast along on the river for a few miles turning into days and weeks. I can dream, can't I?
