I’m not sure what, exactly brings it on but it seems that when I have a lot or too much to do concerning authorities and others who want things from me, I really feel my mother’s absence and I get so sad, it’s almost unbearable!

I feel as though, what’s the point?  Why always owe so much to so many?  Is this what’s left?  G-d forbid, I sure hope there’s more than debts!
Holidays are hard being alone.  I especially miss my son and his family at these times moreso than on regular days.
I’m invited to a family for Pesach that I’ve never met.  The man who invited me seems to strongly fear or dislike dogs, yet my dog is also invited (to stay in the playroom).  I think I better make certain that it’s alright with his wife, as well and that there REALLY is no problem with bringing Pnina.  If it’s a big problem, I might make my own Pesach Seder and stay home.
Sad.

    I find that eating cod fish seems to lift my mood and I get less sad and the sad times are shorter, fewer and farther in between.

    Further to my above comment, “FISH
    Eat it for your brain: Those with the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids, found in several kinds of fish, were happier than those with lower levels, a study from the University of Pittsburgh reveals. Omega-3 fatty acids enhance areas of the brain that affect disposition. Certain fish also pack B12, a known mood booster, which wards off the doldrums by stimulating the brain’s production of serotonin, helping you relax. Aim to eat two servings of low-mercury fish (like catfish, cod, crab, flounder and halibut) weekly for more smiles!

    Eat it for your body: Wild salmon, trout, herring and other cold-water fish are filled with vitamin D, which helps curb appetite, as well as omega 3’s, which lower the risk for heart disease. Research also shows that eating fish regularly improves insulin insensitivity, which helps build muscle and decrease belly fat.”*
