For those who don’t know, my husband died in February. After two months of feeling numb, I’m starting to come out of the fog to face some realities.
First, I need to find affordable senior housing. I can’t continue to live here indefinitely. I’ve done all the applications and now I’m on various waiting lists. They say a year at best and I can manage that and a little more. (It felt good to be crunching numbers again! I’ve still got it, lol!)
My landlord let me get a little dog for emotional support. She’s a little black Havanese and she keeps me grounded.
Second, I need to lose all the weight I regained over the past few years. The stress of my husband’s illness proved to be too much for me, and I began eating compulsively. I remembered how supportive and kind the Sparkpeople community was, so it made sense to return to what worked so well for me in the past.
This is Day 4. It seems longer, lol, but it did the first time, too. I’m not a patient person, and I could use the practice.
See you guys on the message boards.
