I've never lived alone, which I'm thankful for. I don't think I would have survived the experience.
I didn't think I could, at first. I'd lived with my grandparents for over two decades, and then my dad for another 10 years. I miss my dad. He never got to meet Maddy, as I adopted her a few days after he had to go into the hospital.
Being alone was really difficult at first; I'd never been in a situation where there were no other humans. That first night with just the cats...
You get used to it, though. Now I can't imagine going back to having another human here all the time.
