The other day in an email, I wrote or at least implied that things are worse now than they were before.

I didn't mean to imply that.

Things are not worse. They're just different.

Incredibly different.

What used to be an unrelenting ache has been replaced by something else. By two different things, actually.

Palpable potential for incredible joy followed, almost inevitably, by nearly unbearable disappointment.

I got used to that old life. It took a while, but I eventually learned to accept it.

This new life? It will also take time for me to adjust.

I'm trying to be patient about this. I really am.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
