To go or not to go...that is the question


I am officially functioning with no real walls in the basement, an empty upstairs bathroom...not even a floor and have managed the dust that has taken over my life. So today is mine to spend how ever I choose. This weekend is Pride and today marks an anniversary. Well, not sure if it's really an anniversary as much as just a memory. I have been going to Pride for years to celebrate, participate and drink beer! But a couple of years ago I went as a couple and it was fun, exciting and hopeful.

I said a couple of weeks ago that I am trying to take a step forward...and I really am trying. I want to go with my friends and laugh, participate and drink beer. But I am also afraid that it will bring up more hurt and I don't want to invite more emotions. Pride is a big deal in Denver and draws a large crowd. So there will be a lot of people to watch, interesting people to meet and a line around the port-a-potty that can push even a sane person over the edge.

I'm not sure if I am going to participate this year, but I will absolute support the cause however else I can.

As a new reader here I'm wondering about a few things: What is Pride? What occasion is marked as an anniversary/memory? If it's too hard to talk about I understand . . . just curious and want to know you better.

I'm glad you decided to go and that you had fun.

I'm glad you went- I think it's always best to power through this stuff so it doesn't seem so "big" anymore.
