Well...I managed to get through the terrible awful.
And I have to say I did it through the encouragement and love of good friends and loving family and an inner strength that continues to amaze me.
Everything is now final. And I have to say that my anxiety levels which I would have put at a 7 or 8 on Saturday and they remained that through the hearing on Monday have dropped to a 2. I'm so calm and relaxed and just feel at peace.
I do not, for one moment, like HOW things were done, but I do have to say that they were right.
It's still incredibly sad and I still have moments of huge sorrow and grief. It's all tangled up with the loss of my dad, uncle and husband in such a short period of time.
But, I will instead discover a new me that had been hiding and is so ready to come out and play and love life and live and enjoy what's happening all around her.
I knitted on this sock yesterday on the flights and at the airport. The yarn is Allegria by Manos del Uruguay. Yummy yummy yummy. I can't wait for them to be finished so I can wear them and everyone will see me coming from a mile away :)
