Even a decade after The Calamity, I still struggle.  But everyone struggles.  So many have it so much worse than I.  Maggie says that just because others have it worse, that my struggles are no less valid, but it just feels so… like I should be able to handle more.  

Most of the time I’m fine.  Great even.  But then the nightmares come back.  Then I can’t sleep.  My instincts rise and I can’t feel safe.  Will someone take me in the night?  Are the monsters coming?  Will my friends be safe?  Do they think I’m weak for my struggles?  Am I a burden?  Why do they stay when I’m like this? I don’t disserve it.

Maggie assures me that I do.  She’s always there, to hole me and assure me that she loves me, that my friends will always be there for me. 

And you know, I can’t be more thankful.

Hey, look, Eldritch content.  Managed to finally get comfy and finish the sketch for this while at my friend's house the other night, and managed to get it done today.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Be thankful for the wonderful people in your lives.
