Better weather today. Had some sun and warmer temps. Went to a local zoo, which was quite nice, and hit a few breweries. Tomorrow is airboat ride!

Rainy, dreary day in Florida today. Did my run in the morning and hit a brewery this afternoon. Rather boring, but that's OK.

Went to a Florida park and took a glass-bottom boat ride. Sun came out, and it was beautiful for a while. Saw a gator real close. Had delicious ribs for dinner. Pretty nice day.

Not warm and sunny in Florida, but nice to be away. Slept in, had a nice big breakfast, 8 mile run, and going to listen to music/drink beer later. Trying to remind myself to really relax.

Weather is supposed to be better later in the week. Still warmer than NY. Had key lime pie yesterday. So good! And bought some beer to bring home.

Was in a bad mood last night. The group run helped. But just felt like stupid little things were piling up. Checked weather in Florida for next week - after weeks of sun and heat, it's supposed...
Jeff M
12 Mar 2019 ·

...to be rainy and cool the whole week I'm there. I know it's still far off and things change, and I can't change the weather. Still will be warmer than here. But that got me so disappointed and down. I really want heat and sun. I need it...

(not to be abused though, that leads to bad feelings), hanging out with animals.

A year ago today, my neighbor and friend took her own life. My close friendship with her husband hasn't been the same. I think about her a lot, she was a lot like me I think.
Jeff M
01 Mar 2019 ·

The last four months or so have been some of the toughest in my recent memory, with depression being quite difficult. I've thought about how she must have been suffering physically and mentally. I've thought about those who...

Jeff M
01 Mar 2019 ·

...admired and loved her and how she made the decision to end it without telling or talking to anyone. That makes me so sad.

Jeff M
01 Mar 2019 ·

I wanted to post some thoughts about her to FB, and it makes me sad to know that no one on FB cares or wants to read my thoughts. I'd get a few required likes or hearts, but what's the point? FB friends are not friends.

Jeff M
01 Mar 2019 ·

I don't really feel like I have any friends or anyone to talk to. (I'm happy I can still post here to you all!) I'm not at risk of making the same choice she did, but I can relate to her so much. It's been a sad year...

Went out for beers with my neighbor for first time in a long time. Wanted to remain aloof, to not need this friendship anymore since he clearly doesn't. But it felt like old times. It was fun...
Jeff M
27 Feb 2019 ·

...and relaxing. After, we talked a bit about his wife (who took her life a year ago Friday), and he had tears, and I felt bad, like maybe I've dropped the ball on our friendship too in my own attempt to preserve my sanity and deal with my own...

Jeff M
27 Feb 2019 ·

...loneliness. I'm sure he'll be ok. That's the kind of person he is. And I know I have to do what I need to do to get by. I miss having his friendship though. It hurts a little today, like maybe I slipped backwards a little.

I thought that he might have been isolating, too, after what happened. I know my ex boyfriend's ***e is something I still carry with me after almost 8 years. A year after I was just a wreck. I wasn't myself.

Jeff M
28 Feb 2019 ·

I'm sure it's true that he's separating himself from people who were a part of their lives together. Thing is, he's in a serious relationship with a woman (2nd since his wife's death a year ago) and is with her constantly. Not only is he not...

Jeff M

...available the way he used to, he's completely blown me off when we had plans. Friendship works both ways.

Albertine M
28 Feb 2019 ·

Hmm, interesting. I had similar thoughts to Lulu and Alicia, but it sounds like you may have something in that while he understandably might find it difficult to be around people who were part of their lives, blowing you off is not acceptable. Sorry

to hear this, Jeff - it's hard to lose a good friend for any reason but particularly this way.

Lulu S

You are entitled to feel hurt by his unreliable friendship and it's totally understandable to wish to withdraw from someone who has hurt you. If still enjoy his company then I hope you can reframe it to make it work for you.
