This is really something. I'm finding it difficult to cope with being in the house alone with only a cat, now that my mom (who I used to care for) passed away, and my children are grown and moved to other cities. My brother and sister have their own lives. I have plenty of neighbors and friends that I can hang out with. And there's work and church and wherever I want to go where there's people.

I'll soon be moving to where my daughter is. I'm alone in the house but I can't imagine going outside and there's nobody to be seen for miles and not interacting with anybody at all for years. That's heavy.
