    1 year anniversary

    Hi everyone, it been a very long time since I was here. I needed to take a step back. Years ago, we had done personality tests, basic extrovert vs introvert. It was based on how you recharged.

    Things have been better the last little while. Haven't really done anything, just feel better. Sue, general consensus from everyone is that I am doing fine, doctor, therapist, counselor.

    It's late, can't sleep. Just rambing, trying to put some thoughts in order. I can't believe it's been 4 months since Ferd died. It feels like I haven't seen him in forever, like it's been so much longer. And then I think it's only been 4 months, that's why this still feels so raw. I'm back at...

    Just rambling. Today was 3 weeks since Ferd died. I've been trying to get the thank you cards done and have been in tears all weekend.

    Paul's Ferd

    Ferd passed away quietly this evening. I was lying beside him holding his hand and he just stopped breathing. I am heartbroken.
