You know, I hate to upset people (although I seem to do it very easily indeed) – and would never intentionally do so – and it grieves me mightily that any vocalization of my personal angst or explanation of my internal workings here should offend anyone at all.
You know who you are. I am sorry. I am also sorry that these are virtual flowers, but they are the best that I can manage.
Don’t think that you are unappreciated, because you are not. And I know you will do everything you can to help me over my fear of needles so I don’t need to be so angsty in future. I am truly sorry if my way of coping caused you offence.
