It is with no small amount of trepidation I'd like to tell you guys about my new blog. It's what has been going on with the me last couple weeks. Keep in mind the posts are running about a week behind actual events and are written from my journals and vague memories. There is nothing for sale on my blog. It's all just about stress and how i'm dealing, or not, with it.

If any of you mods think it's not an appropriate topic for this forum, please remove. I promise it won't hurt my feelings. Well, not too much anyway. :wink:

Great, I love reading burner's blogs. Can't wait to get some time to sit and read it TK.

It takes a lot of courage to bare your soul on a public stage. I think.. no.. wait.. KNOW.. that you're a much stronger woman than you give yourself credit for, TK. You got this.. :wink:

Big hugs. That's a twisty journey you are on. Kudos to you for sharing.

Your blogs have been helping me. I should get mine back on track, but I feel so whiny, even to myself!

Do not worry about burning man. That is a happy place that is always there for fun and recreation. We can send it to you. It will come to you if you cannot go to it. Magic care packages with sights and sounds. September is a ways away.

I totally read this as "fun and erection" at first glance.

Well, that's true too. 8)

TK, you just rest and let yourself heal. It will all unfold in its own time. I will see you in the dust, this year...

I loved reading the blog tamarakay. I've been there myself and felt for you with every word. You do eventually come out of the darkness and are stronger for it. It took me 3-months and you just have to let it take whatever time it needs. Pushing it adds to the stress and just prolongs the agony.

TK- I'm glad to see you working through this. I have a loved-one who is prone to panic attacks, and have been there to have to help him out of a public situation & get him to safety. The stress of what you're going through is tough, but, like JS said, you are a lot stronger than you think.


I'm going to piggy-back a quick Mod note on blogs as another question came up about this early this week: as long as they are hosted on a non-commercial site (like blogspot, blogger or wordpress) they're fine, feel free to put a link in your sig. Blogs hosted on a commercial site, or a personal site that has commerce in another area cannot be linked to (I couldn't link to one on my site because I sell images there, for example). The eplaya itself cannot be used to post blog entries.


Now, back to TK coming into the light!

Ken too. And he says both are a pretty accurate description

Hi TK

I just read your blog. I'm moved and impressed. Thank-you for posting it.
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.
