I agree with you. I am a privacy nut too, who prefers company at my terms.I TRULY think this forum keeps us Senior members sane and from falling over the edge. I am a born loner and love my privacy, but whenever I feel a smidgen lonely I come to this forum and get my ''human fix'' and then am okay. Thanks ladies and gents!
Sometimes, I am concerned that feeling alone, or lonely will turn into feeling sorry for myself. I do not want that to happen. I try not to sit in my chair like a lump. I try to keep busy, or at least have a semblance of activity other than just sitting in front of the TV.
I just came back from a brief shopping trip to get a few things I need to continue organizing the house. Including a long needed sturdy step ladder, to reach the high shelves in the place without having to always call someone to come over. I can not get rid of the small step stool I had, that used to make Rick nuts when he saw me try to use it without falling off. He told me he never wanted me to use it if he was not at home. Well..he is not here any more, so I had to do something.
