You don't even have to do your best every single minute. Don't ask too much of yourself. You just have to do what you can do. And sometimes that's just "get through this minute". My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Incertus (Brian)

My advice--take every bit of counseling the university provides. Amy and I didn't (not that they offered much), and I think it's obvious we're still suffering some sort of PTSD from the shooting we were involved in seven years ago. The proximity to the shootings no doubt had an enlarged effect. I was the last to see the shooter alive. Amy and her office mate had to slam the door on reporters who wouldn't leave them alone, because her office was right next door to the office where the shooting occurred. When I see or hear a story like this, I react with violent emotion, and I feel like I have no control over it. That's not to say that counseling would have stopped that, but looking back, I'd sure like to have tried it.

Best of luck with this, Michael, and I hope the recovery goes as well as it can.


When one day at a time is too much, take it one breath at a time.

In, and out. In, and out. Sometimes that's all you can do, and you don't owe anyone anything more.

i mean this in all sincerity: good luck.
