I don't think I've had this many comments on a journal before. I'm shocked by the number of people that have sent me their best wishes from both DA and FA. I'm honestly touched, I don't know what to say. You all are so supportive! I am so, so grateful for all of the messages you all have been sending me, and I'll be sure to relay them to my sister.
But I will admit that responding to each and every one of these messages differently will take a lot of time, and although I deeply appreciate all of them, it would take me a very long time to respond to each one individually. I am not going to copy and paste responses, so please allow me to make this journal to express my sincerest gratitude.
I haven't heard much from my family, but I was able to reach out to my dad yesterday, who offered some very calming words to me. Things seem to be getting better already, or at least becoming less dire than they were yesterday. If you all would like, i could keep you posted about this. But for now, thank you all so much for what you've said.
