I can't go into details right now. There are a lot of pieces in the air with three major crises happening. Anything I post about them could end up being a problem, so I'm going to have to wait until things are more resolved before giving an update.
I don't often get this overwhelmed. Usually, no matter how bad the crisis, I can keep a level head and keep moving. I may feel angry, upset or frustrated but I still function. With this set of circumstances, I couldn't do that. It took everything I had just to get out of bed each day and do the very basic things like make sure the kids got to school. I've had a lot of crying jags, sleepless nights and gut-wrenching stress.
I'm slowly pulling myself back together but there are a lot of unknowns right now. And I don't deal well with long-term uncertainty. But I need to get back to work, get back to running the family and get back to my writing career. I'm hoping the worst is over now but I suspect there are still a few curveballs waiting to strike.
Thanks to everyone who sent a note wanting to know if I was okay. Your kind thoughts are appreciated and mean a lot.
