I'm taking a wild guess here. Hoping you'll send me an email if I'm right! I just didn't think anyone else I know was actually reading here, so curious to know (despite what you wrote, you could be any of 10 or 15 people I can think of).

Not that my opinion matters, but I really think that anonymous should identify him/her self. I know it would definitely creep me out if someone commented and did't identify who it was/is. I mean, it's a great act of courage to post personal feelings in a public venue like this. Come on Anonymous....even I want to know who you are so Michelle doesn't have to spend any more of her precious energy on trying to figure this out.

Maxine, I agree with you on the courage part. I'm working on the assumption that Michelle is one of the few people brave enough, or even brash enough, to put it all out there when faced with a difficult situation, and attack it openly.

That said, there's something about the anonymity of these blogs, and the internet in general, that's wonderous! I mean, where else can you go and as part of writing get to "choose an identity"? Blogger's asking me that very question below. I valued that anonymity, as I lurked here, for months before I even posted.

If I know Michelle, she's grinning rather than stressing over me, and if she thinks back to who in her past would be most likely to vex her like this, it will be obvious to her who I am (oh, and while I'm flattered, I'm not Jennifer). There, I all but gave myself away on that one.

That said, Maxine, while I've known Michelle a long time, I don't pretend to understand what she's going through; I can only try to empathize with it. However, you can, and maybe you're right about Michelle wasting energy.

If so, I offer this. Michelle, I think the creepy thing was hilarious (I love your sense of humor), and if I'm not coming off as good-natured, if I'm worrying you, then simply say the word, and I'll stop. I came here to learn about what you're going through, and the last thing I would want to do would be to stress or worry you.

If not, then maybe Cara can tell you who I am?
