I am almost ashamed to admit it, but it was the internet that got me through this period. Yep. Facebook and a few favorite blogs to check in on a daily basis kept me sane. Reading the Spud posts and adding posts of my own gave me perspective on where I have been as well as where I seem to be headed. My online community saved me from complete isolation. Thank you!
