Feeling Blue

I have been sad for the last two days, really sad. Last evening I was on the verge of tears most of the evening. I know I am sad because my friend Irene's mother is in her final days but it feels like more than that. Saturday morning Jack made his first communion. It is a big event in the life of a young Catholic. His dad should have been there with us at church and of course, he wasn't. I'm not quite sure if that is why I am so sad or if it is just seasonal blues. My best friend Kathy was also admitted to the hospital and had to spend the night there, she had some strange neurological symptoms and they weren't ur why. It seems it was likely a bad reaction to Sudafed. I was very low energy today, I cooked our two meals and wrote a few articles but that was it for me. I didn't sleep well last night and I feel exhausted. I think I will make it an early night. Hopefully tomorrow I will wake up and feel fine. I have loads of housework to do and tutoring starts again!! I don't have time to be sad. Picture is my friend kathy and me

I hope you feel better tomorrow!! We are living in some really odd times right now. I don't think we will ever have our old normal back.

@BelleStarr I hear you on that one. We are all tired of this virus. But as long as there are non-believers and idiots who don't care about protecting themselves, or their families it will continue to spread. It's very sad.

I can understand why you're sad, I would be too under those circumstances. Hopefully tomorrow will bring you happy memories instead.

I'm sorry that you are blue. But I can totally understand feeling that way. Jack receiving his First Holy Communion as he did would have torn at my heart too. Today is a new day, and I hope that your blues begin to fade. I'll say a prayer for Kathy and a recovery.

Thank you so much for the prayer. I had a good night's sleep and am feeling better today. I hope it is gone for good or at least for a while.

@BelleStarr Yesterday we had to go to my brother's house to pick up some boxes of things that were for me from my parents' home. My mother went into a home in early 2019 and some of these things she boxed up in advance and some my younger brothers did. I feel out of sorts to say the least. One box contained her rings, many of which were just pieces of jewelry that she acquired over the years, but my Dad's original wedding band was 'tossed' into the mix, as were her wedding and engagement rings. Being casual with such pieces bothered me. It also bothers me that she is still alive but without her wedding rings. I feel melancholy, these are just items, but she cherished her rings from my Dad, and they should remain on her finger until her time comes. I feel odd having them here.

@Juliaacv I have to say, I removed my mother's wedding band before going to the home as well, I don't trust them not to "get lost". But I understand finding your father's ring just tossed in being disturbing. I'm sending a hug, these things are so disturbing to have to deal with. And that is why the boxes from my mother are sitting in my living room after 7 years.

I remember my First Communion, I was looking at the photos a few days ago. Almost no one of those in the photos is anymore, only my younger brother. I understand that you feel down.

I will give you the same advice. Don't be so hard on yourself the build up of all these things always seem worse when you are tired. I hope your early night recharges your batteries and you wake back to your usual positive self.

It is OK and understandable for you to be sad. The sadness will leave and brighter days will come. A wonderful photo you shared with us.

You two look wonderful in the photo. I know what you mean some mornings I wake up feeling like I want to cry and I have to shake it because there is no reason for me to have to cry. I hope you start feeling much better and your friend will be well again,
