Returning to Normal?

I'm (sort of) back, and doing my best to maintain a positive attitude. My Mom did pass away on January 25th, and the funeral was on the 31st. She passed peacefully, and I'm thankful for that. The funeral was quite large, as my Mother had a huge circle of friends and all the family as well. I made it through delivering the eulogy, but I was pretty broken up afterward (I went through the same when my Father passed 16 years ago). I'm trying to remain upbeat and not get too depressed, but it's not easy. Hope to post more soon, but I still have another surgery coming, need to find a place to live, and deal with my financial desperation, so there may not be a lot of posting.

Nothing wrong with becoming depressed. It's normal and natural. The living just have to keep muddling along.

Be well, Pygalgia. I've been going through my own life changes, my wife Megan and I split up and I'm starting over in Berkeley now. Not much to blog about, either. I'm still hopeful for the future and hope you will be too.

It seems that everybody sometime in their life goes through a rough patch and bad things seem to happen all at the same time. I hope that this is your one and only time.

I too am sorry for your loss. The new year is yet but a pup so here's hoping it turns into a good one for you. tb
