    Update on me - talking about deaths
    marysings posted:
    I've had good sessions with DrB lately. That's the good news.

    Albert's uncle passed away on the first of the month. We drove 13hours to attend the services. He was my favorite. I broke down at the visitation, funeral, and the burial.

    The morning of the uncle's services, we received a phone call that my best friend's husband had died very unexpectedly. I didn't handle that very well. My heart hurts for her. His funeral was Monday and I spent a lot of time crying on Monday.

    Then DrB called Monday afternoon and rescheduled our appointment for tomorrow. I usually go on Tuesday. Oh well...

    So I go to the store this afternoon to tackle the August bookwork. Step one balances. Step two doesn't balance and I found several mistakes of mine. I give up and come home. At least I didn't fall apart like I usually do. I slept from 3:30 to 6:30.

    I think all the driving and emotional issues have worn me out.

    Maybe tomorrow will be better.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.

    Not to mention that an anniversary of horrific abuse happened to me in mid-October.

    I wonder why it seems to be end of summer/beginning of fall are the most difficult? Why did so much abuse begin then?

    My heart hurts for all my friends on here that struggle with this time of year. And, of course, for friends on here that simply struggle during the year. I kind of fall into that category, too.

    Peace to all of us.
