I think that a lot of us unterstand the hiding and pulling away because we do it too. I know it is a huge sign for me, and I have to struggle with it when it comes up. Something that you said/wrote stuck with me.... about acceping yourself... if it means anything, I know you are not perfect, it would FREAK me out if you were- and you know what, I accept you just as you are. I will venture to say that a lot more people do than you think.
Dear Tracy, I'm so sorry that you are feeling so low right now...please know that there are so many of us out here who understand and wish we could be there to give you hugs when you need them...please keep taking those small steps forward and you'll get there...sending hugs, Barbara

Tracy, it's always at the time that we need people the most that we push them away. I know when my Gramps died, I was that way-I liken it to a nautalis shell. I just kept turn farther and farther inward. But like a nautalis shell, eventually that space gets uncomfortably tight and you can go no farther. I also get the asking for help thing. I am like that too-probably because growing up, for the most part, when I needed someone (a family member) they always let me down-I had to do everything on my own. But I do have to say that sometimes, what you are going through, the lesson is not just for you. It may also be for the people in your life to learn compassion, how to support someone, how to fogive, how not to judge. Accepting help from the people who love is giving them a gift. Maybe it will help to think of it this way, instead of looking at it like it's proof of your failings or a weakness. It's actually proof of strength-it takes a huge amount of courage to say "Yes, I hurt and I need you right now." Walk on sister, walk on. ((tracy))
I can relate to a lot of that. I just wanted to tell you I'm thinking about you. {hugs}
