Since dh has been in rehab I have decluttered lots in our condo. that gave me the feeling I could (finally) invite a friend over for a meal. I have done that twice now. what a great feeling. MY (very recent) counselor says I need to ;fill up; my inner hole of being needy. I tend to do that with food because it is so handy and always works. But it comes with grave consequences of overweight and health problems. She is encouraging me to reach out to people to "fill myself up." I totally agree with her. Often (while caregiving and caring all the responsibilities here) I have no spare energy left for making fun outing arrangements. I really did enjoy having my friends over. One lunch I made lobster. and two days ago I made salmon for a different friend. Both events were successes.
