Connect with a Tape Buddy When You Need to Hold It Together

fountain-80480_640On Wednesday, @marfromwi wrote in her post, "Buddy Taping," about reaching out to @lillie to make it through a tough moment as "the inexorable march of this disease for my husband has taken yet another step." As Mar shared her heartache, Lillie offered her comfort.

After reading the post, @worriedwife suggested we create a Tape Buddy group, much like our WAIT Buddy and Phone Buddy groups. Request a WAIT Buddy when you've got a difficult wait (like in the hospital), link with a Phone Buddy for regular check-in phone calls. Connect with a Tape Buddy for those times when you need an understanding friend to help you hold it together. When your heart breaks over another loss, when a realization feels like too much, when a day seems to beat you down, a Tape Buddy makes it all better. Your Tape Buddy will catch your tears.

Feel free to use any or all of these groups to build and maintain the support you need.
