I am sure you have enough family, friends and neighbors that would let you know soon enough.
I have a neighbor that does not have a computer, and knows nothing about the internet. Her children bought her a phone so they could keep in contact
with her, which she looks at twice a day and returns calls.
She said her son came to her house for lunch on January sixth, in a rage, because he was trying to contact her to let her know that the White House
was under siege. He got even angrier when she very calmly and blandly told him, "Well that's not good." Then asked him what did he want for lunch.
She is the sweetest, calmest, most level headed person I have ever known. Her TV time is a couple times a week to watch the Hallmark channel. She
barely knows how to turn on her cell phone, and has no computer. I think she has found the key.
Her grandchildren and her children have given up on her, but they still try to keep her up to date of what is going on in the virtual world, while she
tries to keep them grounded in the real one. She is hilarious. I so love her.
Good luck by the way on the e-diet. I completely cut off all social media sites about seven years ago, I just hug around a few forums. I dumped all
the other forums a couple years ago, and now I just post to ATS and one other forum.
My job requires sixteen to twenty four availability. I have to stay awake and ready. I don't like OTA TV, and I get bored after a while of streaming
shows and movies, so ATS is my way of staying awake and alert. It is my coffee.
I tried audio books but they have a tendency to put me to sleep. I tried games, but they are way too addictive. So until my job changes or I quit, I
guess I will hang around a bit longer.
