“Perhaps I am stronger than I think.” –Thomas Merton
You bet! It is hard to imagine what you are capable of until you are faced with it. Here you are, faced with what once seemed impossible. You have the skill to get through this. What skills you lack can be learned. Books/blogs/webpages, support groups, counseling, and friends with experience all will help you navigate through the crisis. One thing is for sure, your life will be different, but it will also be worth the effort. So, buckle down and go to it.
