A Year ago my life was so different

Today, someone said, wow, you are so different than you were a year ago.  For several years I kept a diary of things going on with Jerry's health, after awhile dates and diseases and behavior were all running together.  I knew my life was different with out my Jerry.  A year ago, he was in the hospital and he was making some health care choices that were not in his best interest and he should not be making, so a year ago today, they had declared him mentally incompetent.  What a sad day for both of us that was.  I believe he is in a better place today,  I know I am.  I still miss Jerry.

It was about this time last year that Kathy's decline started to accelerate. Kathy's passing is bitter sweet. I know that Kathy is in a better place but I'm still trying to find that part of me I lost when she died.

but maybe the same can be said for the year before, he was better two years ago, still having issues, but I was not looking at the end so close to coming.  This whole thing is confusing,  still working on my normal.  

Hate being home alone, leaving the house at every opportunity.

 A year ago or two years ago - we all look back to that time.  Just yesterday Sandy was saying that a year ago her husband was walking around and going to the store.  Two years ago Charles was pretty well physically and even a week before he got sick he was still able to go to the store with me and push the cart.  We all think about what was.

 Blfbrat - you say you get out of the house every chance you get.  I'm just the opposite - I put off going anywhere as long as possible and when I do go I get enough groceries or whatever so I don't have to go again for quite some time.  We all deal with it differently.  I enjoy being with people but I enjoy the solitude more, just being alone and with the animals with an occasional visitor.  Guess that's what makes the world go round.
