Still reading through my lj_abuse stuff, so bear with me erin and rahaeli - I'm a few days behind on covering documentation, but I'll have the brunt of next week to myself to devote more time to it. I'm mostly finished, save for the last bits, and am going to reread the entirety of it so as to have it fresh in my mind. That and I hope a reread will put it all into better perspective.
I feel very weak and shaky, but my strength will come back in a day or so and I'll feel closer to 100% by the end of the week. I'm still excited about the weekend, Damien's best friend Brian is coming into town to spend the day with us on Saturday and then we're headed to Atlanta on Sunday morning.
By the way, all of you should be as lucky as I am to have the sweetest, cutest, most attentive and otherwise wonderful man in the entire world for a partner as I have in Damien. I swear, he amazes me with his kindness almost every day. He's also funny as hell when he's not trying to be. When I told him today that he deserves much better than me, he agreed very stoically with "Yeah, that's true" and I laughed out loud for the first time in a week.
For some reason or other, I've been thinking a great deal about my friend arie over the past few days, so wherever you are my sweetie I hope you're safe and well. I keep you in my thoughts and send you good energy. If you're up to it, come to Pride on Sunday and I'll see you there!
Kisses and hugs for all who need them tonight...
