Thanks what a great response….I think all people need to do really is listen and support. Not belittle, fault find or pretend it didn’t happen. I found the few friends I told were great, they really were just sympathetic but it was more than enough. It is very hard to talk about so just not shutting someone up is a great service to them…..thanks for the encouragement to pontificate!
