    Hi Myrtle. How about dropping us a word?

    Hi Wolf, I am OK. No tears yet but still very, very tired.

    This afternoon, I went out to do some errands and realized that my cellphone (which I thought had been fixed, but was not), was not holding a charge, even with a new battery. Since the blizzard may take out our power, I want to have a working phone. So I went to the phone store and bought a new phone. That excursion just about used up all my energy. Will post more tomorrow.

    Hello Myrtle, good to hear from you. Whatever you feel, is right for you at this time.
    All the best.

    Myrtle, glad you checked in. Totally understand the energy drain. Depression and extreme sadness can do that to you. I am glad you got a new phone with the bad weather pouring in. I'm thinking of you and praying for you.

    Dear Myrtle,

    Please accept my deepest condolences. I feel that I know you personally, not only from these boards, but from our phone conversations. We have a lot in common, and I would like to write more to you in encouragement and support for the challenging times ahead. I promise to do so when I return home from my latest trip. Check your email at the end of next week. In the meantime, rest as much as your body tells you to. In grief counseling, I was taught that grief takes a tremendous toll on our bodies, and that we need much more sleep than we realize.

    Hi Joan, Thanks so much for your kind words. I also remember when we talked on the phone and you then represented us at the Alz Assn convention in D.C. It made me (and I suspect others) feel that we were not completely helpless and that at least some things were possible. I am doing OK. I hope you are continuing on your journey of recovery.
