A Simple Request

Readership,

Feeling that politics and other such banter are the sole domain of this blog, I deliberately try to keep my personal feelings out of this.

So pardon me this once when I break my own rule. To wit, today is day thirty-four of discontinuation. With every subsequent day, the withdrawal is more and more intense. Keeping it together has been a huge endeavor. There's little to nothing I can do about it other slog and claw and scrape and fight my way through it, which is what I have done consistently in my life. All is not doom, but I'm feeling very discouraged at the moment.

The best way I can put it to you is this: contemplate the worst bout of the flu you've ever had. Remember, if you dare, the worst day of it. Remember the sort of desperation you felt that you would never get better. Yet, all the time you told yourself that this was likely the worst day; you knew full well the next day would not nearly be as painful.

For those of you who are the praying sorts, I ask you kindly for your prayers. I need strength in times like these.

CK -

Keep the faith, we are all rooting for you in these dark days of yours. I have no idea what you are going through, so I cannot offer any advice. Just know that I am wishing you all the best, and all the strength you need to make it.

Best regards,

Tengrain

You know that I am praying for you and that I send you my every good thought and wish. This is something beyond my own experience, but as I can walk with you in this circle of bloggers, I walk with you.

Peace and healing brother-
