For Victoria over at Victoria Neuronotes.
Sometimes our paths leave us mired in dark places, and we cannot navigate our way out of said marshlands alone. Victoria is an immensely clever, sharp-witted and kind woman, and she needs a wee bit of help. If you are here, upon the Cloud reading this, I tell you Victoria – she is one of us. A Cloudster. Should Esme ever need such help she hopes those of you who were able to would assist, as she asks you to assist Victoria now. She’s had a hell of a rough time over the years, yet remains gracious and kind with her humour still tucked firmly under her arm. Swarn Gill, (a best friend if ever I saw one), has set up the means to do this, and the link is at the bottom of this page.
Here is Victoria’s blog, from which she has had to take leave for the present. – https://victorianeuronotes.wordpress.com/
I have stolen her own words to give you some idea of how much this means to her (Maggie is Swarn’s wife);
“It was Fyodor Dostoevsky who said, “There is immeasurably more left inside than what comes out in words.” That resonates with me as try to express my gratitude. This is probably the most vulnerable and exposed I’ve ever felt while online. I am not one to share my personal struggles, publicly, until I have found resolve and hopefully in some small way, use my experiences to inspire or encourage others. I weep as I write this because you all have inspired me with your kindness and generosity, and I am profoundly humbled.
Swarn, from the depths of my being, I thank you for doing this for me. Compassion is something we choose to practice, and when we first met in 2015, that was a part of your character that stood out. No matter how financially impoverished I might be at this time, I feel rich because of your unwavering love and friendship, and that goes for Maggie, too. I love you. – Victoria”
Here is an avenue to kindness — the road to independence –

(You can be as anonymous as you like on there should you wish to – all we can ever truly do is that which we are able to – I’ve turned comments off as that’s for Swarn’s piece not mine.)
