Update from Miss Duck

Hello my lovely hive,

I just wanted to pop back in briefly to say hi and to let everyone know that I’m safe and sound and, most importantly, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the hive for being so incredibly supportive through what was undoubtedly the most difficult time in my life. I definitely leaned heavily on my amazing family and friends, but everyone on the ‘Bee was such a wonderful source of support and comfort to me. Words can’t express how grateful I am to have been a part of this community.

My life is settling down a bit. After Mr. D’s initial confession, more and more things came to light. We will definitely not be getting back together, but I think I’m going to be OK. I’m moving to a new place and got back to work to be surrounded by the love and support of my fellow staff and students. I’ve also been seeing a therapist to help deal with all the negative emotions I’ve been feeling, and that’s really helping a lot. (Seriously, if you are considering therapy for any reason, I would recommend it. Having an unbiased listener can be a great gift.)

I hope to be back on Weddingbee someday, but for now I’ve started a new blog that has absolutely nothing to do with wedding planning. Feel free to check what’s going on over there, and I’ll definitely be sure to check on the ‘Bee every now and again to make sure everyone is behaving. :)

Thank you again for being wonderful, supportive, creative, lovely bees!

Miss D

    So glad you came back to check in and that you are taking steps forward. I can’t imagine what it is like to go through everything you’ve gone through, but I think therapy was a great idea and I’m glad you turned to that. Good luck – I will definitely be keeping an eye on your blog!

    So glad to see you back, big hugs! And I think it’s great that you’re blogging again, writing has always been a really cathartic outlet for me. (And how did I miss that you’re a media specialist too?? Librarians unite!) :)

    Oh man! I’m so sorry. Meth is a nasty drug – I’m glad you’re away from that situation even though I’m sure it was/is horribly difficult for you. Hugs to you!
