I said goodbye to…

So many things.  My independence.  In many ways my freedom.  My job (or at least working full time).  I’ve lost friends over the year.   There has been a lot of sad goodbyes this year I feel.  But I want to find a more positive one.  Saying goodbye can be a good thing.  I’ve also said goodbye to struggling every day to get dressed, to get to work, to prepare food, to eat that food, to get undressed, to get washed…

I have also said goodbye to one of the best carers I’ve had.  But it isn’t a sad goodbye, its more of a transformation.  I’ve seen her a couple of times since as a friend.  Most recently she gave me some flowers when she popped by.
