Yesterday, I woke up with a wild streak. I had an intense desire to jump in my car, leave everything behind, and just drive (preferably north) until I found some place I wanted to stop. Of course, that was out of the question (how far can you go when you are allowed only short drives?). I didn't think Gracie, my cat, would be too happy, either.
I'm not fond of the south (I'm way south) and would love to have 4 season's and never see fire ants or gators, again. I put the desire aside and settled down to another dull day.
All was going well until I got an email (third day in a row) from someone I used to consider a friend. It was a cryptic message and the subsequent exchange was hurtful and upset me? TG there was a chat room and the visit with the SN wackos was just what I needed. Too bad there was a new missive from said "friend" in my inbox when the chat room ended.
I am fortunate to be less disabled than many and am gaining ground on the "devil". I am coping well and can do much (within limits) but, I am trapped by both my physical and economic limitations. Gracie is my whole family and friends are busy with their own lives so, it gets lonely. I am glad I found SN - thank you.
