..and I'm calling that progress!!
Yeah, the day isn't quite over but, that is the lowest count since Dday so, seems like a milestone or something.
Now who is going to bake me a cake or something?

It takes time. I cried everyday for a few weeks then only a few times a week. Now I only cry when I talk about it (and occasionally when I think too much). Take your victories as they come, I'm baking you a cake now, decorated with a huge smile.

That is progress.
I cried every day, most of the day for a year after d-day! I was traumatized by his LTA.
Then it was once a week for another year....and gradually, because my FWH was doing everything he could to help with the R it kept getting better.
I would love to bake you a cake! Things may seem bleak now but they will get better.
It just takes time.

Welp, I tried, but it didn't come through. But congratulations anyway!

Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Huge hugs!! Take every victory no matter how small!! Ive thought the tears were never going to stop. Then for a few hours they would. Its only been a month and a few days since dday for me. And still there are days that all i wanna do is cry.

That really is progress! I know it's hard, but try and focus on the positives. There will soon be days that you don't shed any tears, and also days you might actually put the A out of your mind for a whole day! It's so consuming in the beginning! Hang in there!
