I use to literally go months without anyone contacting me. It would feel like I was the last person on earth. If I didn't have groceries delivered, I'd never know that the world is still revolving.
Winter is the worst. Usually I have to have 2 - 3 months of groceries delivered at once because of the frequency of snow storms where I am. It can make my road impossible to drive on. Most of the time I don't mind it, but I find I miss seeing the truck that my delivery man comes in. He's the only one I see most weeks. My therapist tries to get up to see me, but if I can't get down to her, chances are she can't get up to me. Hee Hee. We spend a lot of time on the phone. Not the same, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
I think that was probably the reason I gave into "Mel" 6 weeks ago. I was going stir crazy in the house all by myself. I hadn't seen anyone in quite a while and I just wanted to have some contact. :( Even the weather co-operated with me. It was like it was meant to be..... Obviously not, but you know what they say, Hindsight and all that. =(
