Day 331

Reaching out

I've finally managed to reach out and let my husband know I'm needing help. Days of standing or sitting there, words clawing at my throat, cutting my vocal chords and tongue to pieces, unable to pass my lips.

It's unbelievable how a lack of expression can feel so much like suffocation.

And how finally managing to find a way to express yourself is so freeing.

I sat in the car park and cried after sending this. And the tears weren't because I was upset, it was because I finally felt like I could move forward.

    You worded your text so perfectly! Honestly, I've been trying to find a way to tell Honeybun that we need to talk - without it coming across like I'm upset with him or something. I may actually steal some of your wording for this. lol.

    I can express myself for days in written word - speaking them is a much harder thing for me. There's been times I've left a room and text him because I just find it easier to talk when I don't actually use my voice.
    Awkwardly, there's times I sat we need to talk and then I actually cannot push the words past my lips.
    I hope you managed to communicate your wish to talk to Honeybun. There's nothing harder than that first step xx
