Wow - I love it! I've been invited to two pity parties in one week! And I can attend! No problems with driving somewhere, worrying about
chairs, juggling meds, etc. These virtual parties are great!
And you're serving two of my favorite - iced tea and cheesecake. New York style I hope.
I feel like I could have written much of your post. Of course, that's so true of all of us, and both the bad and the good thing about
being here together - if that makes sense to anyone. If we had to go through this alone - so much worse. Be so grateful for a caring spouse, though. I live alone, and life is not only more difficult but much lonelier. Probably why I spend a lot of time here. I wish I had more of life, but now with pain, it tough to get one, although we have to grieve (I tell myself) so we can make some peace with where we are, and then add what good things we can and stop struggling with what we can't have or do. The struggle, oh the struggle. I know that adds a lot to our journey, but seems a necessary part of it.
Ok, pass me some of that cheesecake!
