In stressful time, hard to know what to say
I don't know what I expected the few people I still know to say to help this, but a "positive attitude" is not something I respond to. I think I just wanted someone to listen until I bored myself --not try to "fix" things.
I heard, "Just remember the good times."
Or, "There must have been good times."
Or the ever popular, "Things could be worse--you could have cancer, too."
Or--"Those people's problems are not yours."
Well, they are if you can't stop thinking about them.
So maybe I strained the bonds of friendship. I probably did. So I am back to brooding--and actually feel things receding--becoming more muffled and distant.
But what if these ARE the good times? Oh. never mind.
