i mean, it's a process. so i wouldn't feel badly about not listening to the whole thing. there's **** i've been working on, literally, for years, that i'm still not at the point of being ok with executing the goal.

to your question above about whether a song can kill you because it hurts so much, i truly don't think so. if that could happen, i'd be way dead. there are songs that can bring me to tears even now, with my blunted affect. that have torn me to shreds. but, no...i live on.
yeah I tried it in the past with a therapist as well, didn't work then either (got too upset then and finding it hard to even handle being online while that song was playing, just had to hold Tigger and tried cuddling up to Ebony but Ebony's not in the mood for cuddles, just got told in no uncertain terms by her to shove cuddles where the sun don't shine)

Am I "crazy", missing my snugglebug so much even after all these years? If he's still alive he's a old boy now. Can barely type. too upset.
