I'm going to start getting out more.
I'm able to talk to others now and not tear up when they ask me how I'm doing or when they mention how they are still so sorry about our loss.
I even referred to T as my "late-wife" today while talking with someone and didn't feel too awkward. It was only the second time I had been able to use that term.
I'm still uplifted most days by reading "Healing After Loss-Daily Meditations for Working Through Grief" and the Bible nightly.
These last 16 months have been challenging and life changing on so many levels.
I still so miss Tori.
I've just finally realized that being alone most every evening and all weekend, with just my dog Dwight, is increasingly depressing. Dwight's great. It's just that our conversations are always one-sided.
I need to do more than just work, pay bills, take care of Dwight, keep up with the house and errands and go to the YMCA.
I need to socialize more, travel again.
I'm going to try.
