Sue

Beautifully written article, Ann! There's a wonderful paradox in seeing that there is strength in vulnerability. Some see vulnerability as weakness. I've learned that it's powerful and owning who we are as powerful is totally "sexy"! :)

I agree with Sue up there, but to answer your question re my safe unsafe this week: I had a stroke 5 years ago, and have been a pretty independent and ballsy woman - before and after. This week, my safe unsafe is staying by myself for 3 days while my husband visits his mother (a 7-hour drive away). I've got things to keep me busy and friends and therapists to see, but I feel vulnerable. My anxiety is very creative, so the noise of a neighbor taking down scaffolding is something falling off our roof ... or is it a squirrel in the basement? ... or has the roofer shown up to patch the hole around the new vent? If it's a squirrel, can he find a way to get up here to the first floor?

In my head, I know I'll be fine and nothing awful will happen, but ... it is outside my comfort zone. I guess I'm growing and stretching my boundaries.
