So, this is my life.
And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

my own secret:
my mom didn't tell me or my brother when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. i was away at college, and my brother was distant back then.
she told us later, after everything had been "taken care of." when she told us, i was initially upset. in retrospect, i respect her strength and resolve. it takes a lot of both to keep secrets, and we were all better off for it.
i'm a firm believer that most secrets, if kept, hurt no one.
