Wow, dinner out with a girl friend, what a concept. It was great to see Stephanie, she looks good and seems happier; I know all about how getting out of a miserable working situation makes you look much younger and healthier. And although the restaurant was overcrowded, not the ideal spot to catch up with a friend, the food was good. But the whole evening was almost like having a real life. When did I stop going out, seeing friends, participating in life? Has the struggle at work taken so much out of me, that my retreat became so complete?
