I didn't add this to my list of things that I learned from the Tale of the False HPT, but it's pretty big.
I was having a board of directors meeting tonight at my house (with the most annoying woman in the world, it took all the strength in my body to not kick her out of my house!) and my fertile best friend called. Mr. JB said that she was checking on me, which is so sweet.
You see, my fertile bf was by my side when I had my breakdown in university. We were roommates and she helped me navigate my way back to sanity and she's always been worried (sometimes a little too much!) that I'm going to fall into that abyss.
I asked Mr. JB what he told her and he said, "She doesn't realize how strong you are JB."
And he's right, IF has given me strength I didn't know I had. I didn't know that I would need to be this strong, but almost five years later, I have channeled strength from places I didn't know existed.
So I guess that makes it 12.
And that's a good thing, right?
