We all know what we’re supposed to say when asked, “How ya doing?”

“Fine.” “Good.” “Okay.”

Are you lying? Are you really hurting or barely breathing because of stress? I have been there with Lilly, even recently, as well as a series of family crises. In past months I’ve said more than once, “Someone just shoot me!”

What makes the difference in surviving or navigating these craters (I’m not calling them bumps!) in the road is SUPPORT. You can’t do life alone when awful stuff happens. You have to have the support of others, and don’t be too proud to ask for it. I did a short blog about this in March of this year. It’s been a tough 2016! Reach out for help if you need it.
