end of an era
My father decided he no longer wants to live here. He left last week, and I miss him already. I feel very alone now, with no safety net. I went from having 10+ family members living nearby a few years ago to only one. And he's too busy for me. I saw him at Christmas. I may see him again at Thanksgiving.
The good news is that Pop learned to text, so we can more easily keep in touch. But it's not the same as having lunch with him every week.
The even better news is that my health has improved, and the anemia has stayed at bay. It's amazing how several pints of blood can make me feel so energized.
Now, I need to work on my laziness and social anxiety, so I can go out and meet people.
Baby steps to the elevator, Bob...
