I have been told by a few people in the last couple of days that I do not owe explanations for the profile changes to anyone, and so it is not necessary for me to post any kind of update. Since so many people have followed along on our journey of the last year and a half, I wanted to squash rumors and give a little information. The whole story isn’t mine to tell and I will leave it up to Justin to share what he feels comfortable sharing when he is able.
Depression is a very insidious thing. Even when being treated, it can still engulf a person and take them to the bottom of the depths of hell. There is very little that loved ones can do beyond giving emotional support and making sure that care is available.
Justin will be leaving Arizona and returning to North Carolina upon his release from the hospital. This move is most likely permanent. The decisions involved in this, by both of us and his parents, have not been easy, nor have they been quickly made. Please when choosing to make judgments on either of us, remember that you don’t know what we’ve lived.
If people have questions or theories about all of this, please don’t fuel the rumor mill by speculating, just ask me. I will share the information that is mine to share. Yes, I plan to be at the woo event at APEX on Friday night. I am looking forward to the ability to release some things of my own I’ve been carrying, and some things that were never mine to carry in the first place. I will happily accept positive energy exchanges.
Justin does not have access to the internet, but will be back online when he is released from the hospital. If you want to send him a message, I will happily get it to him. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
