I did talk with J. He told me some of the details of the way things unfolded. Simply incredible.
She did get help. I'd say more but don't feel that's my story to tell, as it doesn't involve me. I lived the whole "lying about MS" chapter, so I don't feel quite as reticent about it.
Anyway, I'm taking my little act on the road again. Headed to KC this morning. It's gray and gloomy, but I have a new audiobook (Away by Amy Bloom), so it should be an easy trip.
See you on the other side!
