The Sears home repair guy came by today to fix the water softener. He was explaining the costs of installing the $12 part when I started feeling terrible. I was clammy, sweating, dizzy and feeling like I did last October when this all began. Kari and the kids were at school. Kari’s parents (they live 3 houses down from us) were out for lunch. I was scared, so I asked the repair man to babysit me for a bit. He was very kind and understanding. His father has been recently diagnosed with colon cancer and started chemotherapy. Thus he had some empathy for not feeling well and being alone. I felt like such a dork!! 42 years old and needing a stranger to “baby sit” me until the episode passed. I think someone is trying to tell me I’m still not humble enough.
