She's Come Undone (Or Has She?)

"The funny thing was, whenever I looked at those pictures--all the time I was at the hospital and everything--all I could ever see was this poor, sensitive, vulnerable boy...someone vulnerable like me.  That's who I kept waiting for to show up.  I just had this incredible blind spot.  I was like Helen Keller when it came to you." ~She's Come Undone

In a work of fiction, Wally Lamb recorded my experience so poignantly that as I read tears of relief splashed down my face.  Lamb put into words emotions and realizations that I have struggled to verbalize for over two years.  I want send this author a letter of gratitude for the gift of freedom.  I know myself and I finally see Dante for who he is.
