Thank you! I find it helps to cry. To feel the feelings. I find myself doing "Phewwwww! and blowing out a lot! I write a WordPress blog called "Good Morning Sunshine!____. That has helped too. Some are about mourning or grief. Pen palling has helped. Having been a caregiver helps bits and pieces of things I have done help. People help most of all. We lived a life of "us" Just two artists until bombarded with my daughter and her kids. It helps that one of my grandsons is here with me since Tom died. He has Diabetes 1 and Mom works as an LPN in the thick of it at times. So this has worked well so I have to do a routine. I home school him he is 15. That and there is this bossy cat named Merlock! Tom's job was 4:00 pm to after midnight. So that is when I worked. I think it was a good thing for me to just pivot and not focus on some projects until I could. I am thinking of going for my MFA in writing.
