So, here we are, almost three weeks later. I've gotten quite a few emails from concerned readers and updating here just seemed easier. Some days are fine, others are terrible. We married when I was 17. I've never been alone before. Ashley and I are doing fine, mostly. When she's asleep it is so quiet, painfully so. I can't sleep in our bed, I don't even like being in our bedroom. I don't know how to deal with the hurt, I just don't.
But, the up side is, we are okay. Thank you all so much for the emails of concern. They mean more than you will ever know. We are taking things one day at a time. That's all I know to do.
