What do you write about when you have nothing to write about?

My day is ending the way it began - lots of fog and rain and cold. It seems to mirror how I've been feeling lately. Well, isn't that fun? I ate some cereal earlier and got very sick afterward, so I guess I've made a real mess of my stomach over worrying. I did some research online since I don't really have anyone to talk to, and it seems (as if I didn't really know), that the problems with my cat and possibility of her passing have brought me right back to my husband's passing, and that's causing the anxiety. I found some very good material regarding these feelings when a pet is seriously ill and it touched on many things I've been feeling myself. I guess I'm normal, after all. A woman online messaged me the other night when she learned about the testing the vet still wants to do. I've only known this woman (online friend only) since I lost Britt, but she offered to send me money to help with the costs I'm facing. I was pretty shocked and touched by that, but of course, I can't accept it. I'm sure her family would kill her for sending a stranger online money! Last night, we private messaged for a little while. Her son has worked in the veterinary business for over 25 years and while she and I were chatting, she was relaying everything to him. I didn't learn anything new, but it was nice to get a sort of second opinion. I'm getting long winded again so I will close. thanks for putting up with me Claudia

The really good thing about not feeling well and not eating much is that I got a great jump start on losing some weight. I'm feeling better today and easily ate a sandwich and a cup of tea but I don't feel like eating things that I used to eat. So I think there really might be a silver lining in every cloud!
