Hi Mickey_One ~
I want to clarify that I did
greet Nan when she first came here. In fact, I PM'd her, afterward, seeking clarification as to whether she might actually
be my former husband's former companion
. This 'possibility' was based on her moniker here, and some other detail, which I can't now remember, and the way her entrance here and the details all came together.
However, she's not; and I've never really considered her to be a troll type. Even though we [apparently ~ per her own declaration] disagree on most things, her overall approach to me has been quite decent. In fact, she's been very supportive of me, at various times, with regard to sharing my memories through writing here. Possibly regarding other things, as well, though that's the one that comes immediately to mind ~ but, then, I'm tired, too
. There are no physiological responses when I see her name
. Even though your and her communications are yours and hers, I'm just concerned that she not get unduly
caught in any crossfire here.
The point that she made here, regarding the entire thread not having been read [differing views by those here, on what the conclusion would/should be, of course], it seems to me is a legitimate and fair one. Under similar circumstances, it's a point I most likely would have made, too. I initially took your comment to be referring to the original
thread ["Katrina" ~ and there's some other, related stuff on the "Sadness and Joy in the News" thread] containing the postings regarding Squidgy.
I'll respond to the rest of your posting, later. However, yes, I agree with your assessment of Joe, and [regardless] I certainly allowed for my own misinterpretation. I know that, eventually, Joe and I will work through it all, together and regardless. In the meantime [in case I interpreted it correctly], I asked him to reserve judgement on it, at least until I get a chance to spell out my perspectives. You're right in your assessment that I have been feeling under siege. Good way of putting it.
