so today was a huge day for me. huge. it won't sound big to most of you but for me? massive. I drove from my home to Stratford and back with three of the kids and the dog just for a day outing. Now it is only about an hour and a half each way (less if you are a faster driver than me) but (and this is huge) a year ago I was not driving at all. For me to drive that distance on highways and all - huge accomplishment in overcoming agoraphobia. I am proud of me (and of Bryn who is coming off her anti seizure meds and was a bit edgy and instead of going down into a bad place she was helpful and supportive of me all the way there and home - I am not sure I could have done it without her along).
