I've been reading blogs. Blogs that scare me. Blogs about severely disabled children and blogs about grieving lost children. Why do I scare myself like this?
I think it's because I like to be prepared. I have always found myself imagining the worst possible outcomes of any situation, preparing for that outcome, and being pleasantly surprised when things turned out better than I had expected. The downside, of course, is all the additional stress I put on myself. But I really don't know any other way to handle my fears - this is how I've always done things.
How would I react if something terrible happened to Ganon? I don't know, but at least now I know that it wouldn't be the end of everything. Somehow, these brave parents have coped, and that means I could, too. That's what lets me sleep at night - the knowledge that no matter how bad things get, I will always find some way to pull through.
