Yesterday was rock bottom
Okay, yesterday was a recent rock bottom. There have been worse times in my life of course, but yesterday is way up there on the shit list. I didn't share all of my misery on this site, which is why I said "It's worse than it appears" yesterday.
Things are looking much better today. And thank you to everyone who discussed the dog-situation with me, privately or on this site. It really really really helped, I appreciate it dearly.
