Yes, there are others worse off. I think part of my problem is that I'm 100% alone. I have some "friends" here, but they are more acquaintances than anything and they have their own problems and their own lives. My family lives far, far away. But, I still consider myself fortunate in that I own my own home, have a little kitty, for the most part have good medical care, and aside from the plethora (I love that word) of conditions that have popped up like nasty troublesome weeds I can't get rid of, I am otherwise in good health. But, maybe once I get used to all this, I can manage to be somewhat happy again. I've found over the years that when I have a challenge, it's always an adjustment. I have been through worse, like when I found out my daughter was a victim of a serious felony and the police wouldn't do anything about it–that was so horrible that I thought I'd waste away. When you're a mom I've found it's harder to see your kids go through something horrible or a bad illness than it is for you to go through it yourself. So, I guess, if I survived that, and if my daughter survived that, then I should be able to handle this.
Anyway, thanks for being a listening ear today. I hope the rest of your day goes OK and that you have a decent, if not a good and rewarding, week.
