In the dining room, I have all of my phones, 2 cells and land line and my laptop computer. It is my Grief Control Center. I do have calls and texts of support sporadically coming in throughout the day and the computer obviously provides a diversion. When I first get up, I like to play a game of Spider Solitaire. I use it as a gauge of how well I'm focusing as I start the day. If it takes me a particularly long time to complete a game, I know my mind is having problems. A quick time indicates to me that I might be doing OK in the focus area. I play throughout the day both as a diversion and a gauge. Of course I check the DS Support group throughout also, email and just surf, maybe shop for something I want. I get tired of it after a while but even when I get up and do something (cut the grass, e.g.), I look forward to coming back to the 'Center' to look for texts, email and the Daily Strength posts. I think it's helping me through the hardest days.
