We have been busy the last few days. A young man we both love and respect graduated from High School in Biloxi, Mississippi and we drove there and back Thursday night, just to support and honor him at his Graduation. He is our adopted Grandson and he grew up under some less than perfect circumstances. He overcame them and has become a responsible, young man.
Then today, we had our middle Grandson's High School Graduation. While we did not have to drive three hundred miles for this graduation, it was still stressful and demanding for me.
Tonight, like most nights, I am experiencing emptiness, loneliness, depression, and a deep need to locate, talk with, and be with Navy shipmates. These feelings go deep and most ofter leave me in a state of exhaustion and anger.
I am loosing this battle. I am fighting it alone. And I am exhausted.
