Well, I recently passed a kind of semi-anniversary, I guess. It was six months on August 25th that I've been separated from my wife.
What a mind-expanding and life-altering time it's been. No, not fun. There are still things that are out of balance. I have no living room furniture, still, for instance. Sure, money's tight, but that's not really the reason. I think I'm afraid to settle in because I see this place as temporary. I just don't know for sure what's next.
But, and I do think it's related to the passing of the semi-anniversary, I have begun to get things I need. I got a real mobile phone, complete with a two-year contract. I bought a re-conditioned laptop and set up internet access at the apartment. That's a necessity of life (for a computer geek, anyway) that I have done without for ... several years now. All I have to do now is to cut down on my web surfing during work hours. Not to mention figuring out how to make myself get off before midnight. ;-)
I have stolen 'goose's Demented Bunny idea and I'm running with it. :-) I started a Social Group on here, but more importantly, I'm trying to integrate the idea of being a Demented Bunny (at least, my idea of what that is) into my everyday life. To me, it means living with a bit more freedom, a little less concern for some distant future that only exists in my imagination. I'm starting to believe that I'm okay, no matter who I am, which in turn has led to learning a bit more about who that is.
I do find myself repeatedly thanking my friends here for all the things I've learned from them. I might've survived if I didn't find this site, but I would never have grown so much so quickly, and I certainly wouldn't have enjoyed it even a fraction as much. I love you all.
