Daily grateful for my caregiver being here. She's like the mom I would want to have. Caring, non critical, SUPPORTIVE.

Birth mom was not emotionally, mentally available to me. I was born 3 months early 70 yrs ago so was very sickly. She had 3 sons already and I was a lot of work .
My parents had 4 more kids, last one- the baby girl. She could do nothing wrong in mom's eyes.
I was a tomboy and sister girly girl.
Further separating myself and mom.
I found refuge in mom's who's kids I did day care for. I was accepted and appreciated by outside mom's !!!


#saturday time out!

Taking time out from my troubles for a few hours. Managing several chronic conditions and day to day tasks is mind boggling to say the least.

Share your experience with depression and connect with people to support you.

Awesome Saturday

Beautiful sunny day! Taken 3 walks.
Checked out the back boxes in neighborhood. Ate n drank fluids . After last week of extremely sore feet , feels good to get up n go again!
Today's activities are working to turn off all the negatives of the week or so! Now going to watch TV sports with my feet up.

Is it Friday yet?

Real ready to slow down some..My caregiver and I prepared foods, shopped for groceries then home. All due to fact we were to have an appointment tomorrow late morning but tonight less than 24 hours before they cancelled. Same office requires 24 hours notice of me or incur a fee!
Go figure! This is second time they have cancelled on me since June '21.
Medical world doesn't value patient at any point. Extremely hard to understand the dynamic.
I've pretty much bounced back from extreme paininnfeet over last
Now working on my Mental Health cuz it took a big hit.
Seasonal affective, uglybstuff for me. My big window faces the parking lot and other windows are buried by bushes.
I'm not ready for all the holidays. Having to accept that they are here! When my nieces and nephews were young holidays were fun for me.
