Jo's gonna be fine. She fought the dragon and won.

Boy that dragon head will look nice over her mantel...

But I do understand that feeling of transiency, of the fragility of life. I lost a friend to cancer a few years ago, and after that every thing seemed so tentative...loving people hurts.

But, worth it.

badger, remember that you are on a blessed emotional rebound--she's home! there's a long row to hoe, but she's home and there's the ineviatble let-down fallout, just because you can now. please don't freak yourself out, you have been incredibly strong and will continue to be so, but you must allow yourself some emotional downtime as well or your amazing strength will come around back on you. you are so wonderful. try to control the thinking for awhile to give yourself some space? the transcience is a bitch, i continue to have difficulty with this one, myself, but of course you know that it is the fact of life; it's your own heightened emotions causing you distress(and if they weren't, you wouldn't be human, don't try to *really* develop those superpowers or you'll fritz! :-)

Your super strength is impressive, but don't forget you've got backup.

Take care of yourself. Helpers need help too. You are an amazing supportive friend. You may need some amazing supportive friends for yourself. To de-brief.

see? consensus:)

Badger, I totally respect how you are processing all of this. Sharing your inner dialogue with all of us is a rare gift. I am privileged to bear witness to you, and, of course, to Jo.

Come on over to our place any time if you want to 'just be'.

Coming in late, and everything is probably different.

This hurts to read; it's so transparent and naked (not nekkid!) and ... you. I wonder how much the ranty anger is connected to the worry about Jo is connected to the fear of losing people/battles to the abortion laws to Katrina to new friends and social circles and complexities.

Surf the waves as much as you can and listen to the folks who say you have backup. I want to be on your backup list, and not just for the ranty situation in the beginning.
