Illness in a home affects everyone. It touches each person in a variety of ways. Ally wrote this sign tonight and I did not even know what to say. I guess because she is right. I don’t think I’m fun anymore either. Fun takes energy, time and the ability to put everything else — all the gotta do’s aside — and just be. Tara talked to Ally about the sign and Ally said she didn’t mean to hurt my feelings. I told her I understood that I’m not much fun right now and that she gets to say that out loud. I guess the one thing we can stay good at is telling the truth and letting that be okay.
