Melody speaking. If you’re following along, you’ve probably grasped that Vanessa is having a depressive episode. It happens even when you haven’t had a shitty childhood, which she unfortunately really did. I’m sorry to say I wasn’t really aware of how bad things were getting until yesterday morning’s blog postings, after which I took the rest of the day off. We spent the time talking. She’s seeing a counselor. Please don’t be afraid to comment.
