I tend to isolate when things are getting bad and given my history it tends to cause worry in the people that care for me. I am well known for the vanishing act, the bar stool still spinning or the last bit of light as the door swings shut behind me.
Need to remember though that after awhile the phone will stop ringing and the search party will be called back to town. People can only care for so long and it’s not fair to make friends worry. If this sounds familiar…I’m sorry and I will start being more aware and maybe even pick up the phone more often.
