11. Breathe, and know your love can help restore your peace.

I am not so elegant with words as many others here, but I am moved to respond to you. First, hugs!

I feel your cries within my heart, willing my tears to turn into the healing balm you need to wash away your despair.

I hear you and understand the scream of your pain.

I feel and understand the white-hot burn of your anger.

I share your overwhelming grief at the loss of your precious, precious fur-babies.

And oh, I know your hate. But please, please don't turn that hate inward. You didn't do anything wrong.

Your fear and insecurity as well are shared by many of us, but I think especially by those of us who are alone. Alone is a hard thing to be. The world often chews us up and spits us out as so much flotsam. But DU can be a life preserver - and you have taken a big step in just reaching out.
