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

Glad to hear that you have somebody who talk to about it. She sounds like a good friend. Some of my best friends I have are online friends. It was nice of her to offer to help you out. I am still praying for your kitty.

Thanks so much for the prayers, Laurel. You don't know how much that means to me. And yes, most of my "real" friends are online people. They make a real difference in my life. As do you, too!

You've been very lucky with the people you know, hopefully it will all work out. My mum gets these stomach trouble, she eats little and often. Seems to work for her

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!

When I have nothing to write about, I don't write. I don't feel that I have to write. Downtime is a good thing.

Yes, having someone to talk to is what I sometimes need to get me through. Feeling all alone is the worst. But I know I'm really not all alone and that means a lot.
