  1. I found this thread to be very comforting. It is 2 months since my bleed and I am still adjusting to life as a recovering person.

I was extremely stressed over this move for my mother and agonized over whether this was best for her since she had experienced 3 years of depression due to the isolation of living alone (it was!).
