I love technology. How did people deal with not being able to see their grandkids who lived so far away? Woke up with kids and a sweet grandboy talking in the next room. Got to spend some chatty time with a friend. My son msg'd me on our way to Glenwood hot springs for a b'day soak with my hubby. - It's real. Deal with it. Stress, depression and the holidays: Check out the tips for coping on the MAYO Clinic site
It's so clear that I was trying to be positive and then crashing anyway. I wonder how less complex my grief would have been in the first four years had I honored my need to isolate with just my hubby and the kids & grandkids. Just a thought.
