I was lying on the floor a moment ago putting together a little bird feeder my mother had gotten me months ago. Maggie did something very uncharacteristic of her as she walked over and started to lick me on my face vigorously. "But Dad! You need a bath!" she seemed to be saying. I giggled and swooned and cried, "Yuck!" But I let her do it. It was a special moment between me and my best friend.
I realized I am suffering from a depression while my parents were gone. I am so dependant upon them for everything. I am out of gas. Out of meds for my toothache. And several other things. I am also noticeably missing the socialization and social comfort I get so much from them. Mom calls me several times a day many days and often comes over. I count on dad coming every night with my medications. This has been noticeably lacking from my life.
I was reading "The Homeless Guy" today. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment. What is noticeably lacking from his life is any family support. That must be such a lonely and depressing existence. The more I read, the more depressed I grew until I left to read Upsy-Downsy's Blog. I was immediately perked up by the suggestion to go out and get fresh air and sunshine. And you know what? It worked. Me and Maggins headed outside for a little camera time. I'll post that video in a moment. Hope you all are well today! I miss you all!
