So it’s been like a month and a half since I had anything to say.
No, I didn’t die of pneumonia — although it was an appealing option.
I’ve been in the long tail of recovery, where I’m not really feeling “100%” but I’m not sick enough to say I’m feeling sick. Still coughing, but with less force and less frequency.
In the meantime though the three Ds have got me: Depression, Despair, Darkness. The darkness and depression are like old friends, but the despair is new.
It’s a kind of hopelessness, sort of a conviction that this is it, there’s no light in this tunnel, no improvement or salvation around the corner. Every day is just another step closer towards an inevitable finale.
There’s still some enjoyment along the way, it’s not non-stop pain. My kitties and my friends help, and I’m grateful for that.
Anyhow, that’s why there’s not been any activity here – nothing fun to post about.
