Remember last year when you decided to write letters to yourself and read them a year later to see what a difference a year makes? Well guess what? That idea turned out to be kinda awesome, and it really helped you. So we're doing this again!
September 2010 Letter - Kristine had a baby shower and things were looking up. And the Sookie died and it hurt so very much. It took a long time to heal from that wound, but you did.
September 2011 Update - You reconnected with your sister and tried to devote more time to your family. You also had to find a new home for another of your dogs, Whiskey because you were moving and couldn't bring her with. It was so painful but you knew it was what was best for her.
This time last year . . . You got off your medications and things started looking up. You developed an addiction to makeup and also a deep love for metal chickens. You also made a BIG decision and decided to move back in with Matt's parents in order to help out. Hopefully a year from now it will have paid off for all of you. Things are good here, but it takes work to function as two families in one. Take care of your family.
Also, you became unsilenced and finally spoke out publicly about the abuse you endured as a child. It was a weight that was lifted from your shoulders. Continue to speak about it in order to help others. This is a cause that is dear to your heart, so do something to help.
