Moving Forward

It is starting to feel like summer is coming to a close, much cooler temperatures this week. Not complaining about that, but I'm not sure it is time for summer to end. It feels like summer last only a couple weeks anymore. Not really ready for the leaves to start falling, not sure I will be up for cleaning them up this year.

It has been a rough week physically. I've been without my meds for most of this month. Having trouble walking and using my hands. It is taking me hours to wrap Etsy packages. I always write a personal note to my customers and my handwriting doesn't look so great these days.

After talking to a fb friend last night, who struggles with the same disease, I am feeling quite anxious and fearful. She can only be up for about 10 minutes at a time, now has two inhalers she has to have in order to breathe, it is now attacking her liver and, she has to have two magnifying glasses in order to read, and other organ problems. I deal with all the same issues, they just have not progress to this stage as of yet. She is fortunate having family to help and support her. I carry my struggles alone and take care of my husband.

On another note. I made her a meditation journal. I'm putting it in the mail this afternoon. I scattered some nice quotes throughout the journal.

She has advised me to go forward with applying for disability. I've been putting it off, but I know it must be done.

My fish are doing well now that the snake is gone. It brings a sense of peace and calm when I sit out there and watch them. I think I would like to have an aquarium in the house, just can't have anything else to have to clean and take care of.

I found a soup recipe that I am going to make. Seems like the perfect day, cloudy and breezy.

I am thankful for a decent week on Etsy. It definitely helps with buying groceries when I have a few sales.

Thanks so much Gail. I appreciate your thoughts.

I hope to be able to get meds in a couple weeks.
