Yesterday, I went to see a friend with an disturbingly familiar story. She told me that of all her friends, I was the one who could understand.

Last week, her husband was caught in the midst of doing things that were illegal, immoral, and utterly stupid. Unlike Raymond, his response was to put a bullet into his own brain. That variation has given her situation both advantages and disadvantages when compared to mine. We discussed them, and decided that at least we had each other. Now, support groups make sense to me. I know what crazy emotions are tearing though her brain, and she knows I know!

We have been friends for 5 or 6 years, and met as SAHMs in a homeschool group. Our children are of similar age. Like Moon did for me, her elder daughter is trying to 'handle' everything. The younger ones act like nothing has happened, which is what Agent did. Her eldest is in college, and my friend plans to continue homeschooling the 12yo and 14yo. Texas law says that 12yo children can stay home alone while she works.

We joked that the world ended sometime last year, but our psyches simply have not processed the info.

"...That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!"
