In the midst of the terrible times I am going through I have him.
I’ve always had dogs and cats in my life. I always will.
Going through the house, so many memories. Cleaning it up. Trying to eat. Under stress.
Hope I make it. I have been to doctor and have high blood pressure, a first in my life. Am addressing this through diet and exercise — but I attribute it to the stress that started in 2000, and continued to 2006 — the layoff, the loss of parents, the coming apart of everything that felt solid about my life.
I don’t think there is any solidity in this country anymore. I think the next 30 years here aren’t going to be pretty.
