I've been telling people that I'm able to do a lot of things on my own, and that the things I need help with the most are transportation and finances, and those seem to be holding up.
I realized there's something else I need, and it's the most important of all. It's also the scariest thing for me to ask for.
The best thing you can give me right now is the gift of your time, attention, and affection. I miss having dates with y'all. I hope you can find room in your various busy schedules to accommodate my request.
I've been holding myself together to, well, save all y'all from me. I've been operating on the principle that y'all have enough issues to deal with, and that dealing with me would be just too much. So I isolated myself, and you respected my request for space.
I forgot to rescind that.
I need your emotional support. Please.
