We committed to really spending time together – and we have. Much of that feeling of closeness and re-commitment has continued. We are working to make sure we make time for one another that doesn’t involve falling asleep in front of the TV – even if it is just in the shower in the morning. We are working to help E learn to be more self-reliant.
My health is reasonably good, and my job seems to have settled down. I have had very little aggravation, and the people who I work with have been very welcoming and appreciative of the contribution that I can make to the department. So – why am I still “in recovery”?
