(Tearful intake of breath...)
That was a beautiful post.


Kateri, I just have to continue to say thank you. Thank you for writing. Yours is a voice that needs to be heard. I clicked some of your links and was re-horrified at some of your nasty vindictive commenters. Yours was the first natural/first mother blog I came across, after you so bravely posted at Tertia's quite a while ago, and I so appreciate you being so open and honest about your life and feelings, even when the hordes of haters were jumping all over you. Those sorts of comments seem to be happening less, (hopefully? or are you deleting them?) Of course there is still a long way to go, but I really believe you and the other first mother blogs are making a difference.


Thank you so much for sharing this. Wow... thank you.


you rock.


Wow. Amazing post.


Amazing, and so wholesome. I hope this outlet helps you, the fact that you are able to express it is wondrous. I can feel your emotions in your words, and I wish desperately there was something I could do, although I don't even know you.


Keep writing. You're making more of a difference than you even know. Your writing is both brutal and beautiful at the same time--- much like life in general. Your words are succinct and yet you succeed in creating poetry.



Linking to you. Hope you don't mind.


That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing it. I had no idea.
I'm so sorry for your loss.

Wow, that is the best description of what happens that I have ever read. Gorging on the kool-aid - no kidding.

Please keep writing! We need people who can tell the world.
