Truly deeply hurt, in grief and in pain!! Self help is the only balm!!

you are right there. self help, and a lot of time. thanks for the kind words. :)


Thanks! yes, and in the end, we are left with disappointment. :)
i wrote this from personal experience. at that time, only the support of the family can ease the pain.

I've been there, and none of the "elixirs" I tried fixed anything; they just made it worse. A sad and honest haiku. Thanks for sharing.
