Been through a couple of rough days but who doesn't every now and then? I'm doing better now, I'm smiling non-stop again and I don't feel that lonely anymore. Probably the talking-it-out bit was what made it feel better and easier; boy, my friends are so supportive - love them to bits! All it needed was a smile, a nod, a listening ear, a hug and as soon as I spoke out I got lots of those and everything just felt lighter. They made me feel braver, they made me feel better.

On another note, a thought about a childhood hero who passed away two days ago.
