    To which D would reply, “It is your responsibility KayLynn to make yourself abundantly clear.” I often have been thinking about topics for so long before I broach them, that when I speak, I assume he knows the hours of preceding thought and their context. I spent years writing to D in hopes of controlling our communication (and my temper and tears). Hang in there Ally!
