Big Fat Elephant

Everything has changed. I've never felt that sentence so literally. It's like I was lifted up and set back down on the other side of the same mountain I've been looking at for 33 years. And now I see...
I think I have whiplash, or PTSD, or some other condition that you can get when your world changes in less than a minute. My legs are shaky, I feel panic coming on most of the time, I think I might vomit. These are the symptoms.

And I have to walk around every day like nothing is different.

Is this about the "news" or is there some newer news? I hope it's just the magnitude of your first news because that's totally normal -- at least for the good ones. And you'll be awesome.
Love you,
