After her divorce, Cynthia moved to the big city. Her first home there was a studio apartment where she lived alone. She says it was “so depressing, so isolating, so lonely. I came from a really active life in which I raised two children, had pets and ran a business. Living by myself was so quiet. It became harder and harder to go out and do stuff. The loneliness fed on itself. I started to get really hard on myself, really down. I actually started eating frozen dinners. I’d never done that before. It’s just hard to cook for one person.”
